Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Debbie Gibson

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll find salvation six worlds away
The Real Lyrics:

The Story: I thought the misheard lyric referred to the theory that everyone in the world is separated by only six people, i.e, six degrees of separation. That she was saying that if she couldn't find her way to the boy she loved, she would find solace in the thought of an interconnected world where they really weren't so far away from each other after all. - Submitted by: Michele Lein
