Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Dave Mason

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Alone Together/Headkeeper album at
Dave Mason's, "Slipt Coconut"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Red pokadot
The Real Lyrics:
Slipt coconut
The Story: I went to a Head East & Dave Mason concert in Philadelphia in 1975 right after Dave Mason's 'split coconut' album came out. He had had some decent albums up till then and Split Coconut was the end of his career. Anyway, a girl I was with didn't understand what was being sung and she was trying to sing along. At the 'slipt coconut' part she sung 'red pokadot'. Don't even ask, I don't know.... - Submitted by: Andy
Dave Mason's, "We Just Disagree"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There ain't no good God
There ain't no bad God
The Real Lyrics:
There ain't no good guy
There ain't no bad guy.
The Story: I was listening to my car radio awhile back, and heard this song. I thought it sounded like the misheard version that I cited. I asked a friend about that, and he really got a good laugh, and told me what he thought the words really were, and we confirmed it on a lyrics site. - Submitted by: Samantha Wayland
