Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> David Gray

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!).

David Gray's, "Babylon"
The Misheard Lyrics:
A Goya ye A Goya ya
The Real Lyrics:
Let go your head, let go your heart.
The Story: Heard this song the radio as a kid. It was so catchy it stayed in my head, but i thought it was funny cause I thought he was singing about GOYA. Years later it popped back into my head, and tried hard to find it searching lyrics with goya. No luck. Then Plj played it and I looked on their recently played list. - Submitted by: Ann
