Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Derek & The Dominos

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:
Hey, ho!
The Real Lyrics:
The Story: I heard this from my barber, who claimed today that she was 15 years old. She almost freaked when I mentioned this site. Actually, I'd add about ten years, but that's another story. - Submitted by: The Skuz
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, Pa!
I've eaten all these peas.
The Real Lyrics:
You've got me on my knees.
The Story: I was doing a project for school about Eric Clapton. As I was listening to this song, surprisingly, I misheard him talking about eating peas. I listened again, and then I heard the actual lyrics. After this hilarious experience, I made my own song with those words. - Submitted by: Evan
