Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> David Sanborn

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 Sanborn's, "Bang Bang"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Cornbread, hogballs and chitlins
The Real Lyrics:

The Story: My wife and I sailed on the Dave Koz and friends cruise in 2006. Davis Sandborn was one of the performers on the cruise. Before he played Bang Bang, he made a point to everyone of us the actual wording of the song. To clear this up, per Mr. Sandborn himself. "Cornbread, Hog Jowls and Chitilins" is correct. - Submitted by: Erv and Shari
