Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Dave Mathews Band

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!).

Dave Mathews Band's, "Crash"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hike up your skirt, little boy, and show your world to me.
The Real Lyrics:
Hike up your skirt a little more, and show your world to me.
The Story: I was shocked and digusted that this 'hit' song seemed to blatantly advocate pedophilia, and no one cared eneough to say anything about it. Well, I was eating lunch with two friends of mine when the song came on in the restaurant. I immediatley launched into a fanatical rant about the song's perverse lyrics; something along the lines of, 'So I guess its cool now to be a pedophile??!!! This is sick!!,' etc... My friends let me go on like this a few minutes, looking at me like I was crazy, and finally one of them said, 'Its hike up your skirt A little more, jack-ass.' 'Oh,' I said, 'Nevermind.' - Submitted by: Lee Morris
