Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Diana Ross

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!).

Diana Ross', "I'm Coming Out"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm coming up!
The Real Lyrics:
I'm coming out!
The Story: I believe I heard it as 'Coming up' because Paul McCartney had a hit with that title the same year. When I found out the correct title, I thought, 'No wonder this became a gay pride song!' Come to think of it, 'I'm coming up' suggests that Diana is about to puke. - Submitted by: John

I want pretzels
All over his body.

The Story: I think the first time I became familiar with this song, I was going through a period of hearing difficulties. And I'm sorry to say, it just sounded like she said, "I'm hiding like a spider in the dark" I guess I knew that wasn't what she really said but I couldn't get that thought out of my head. Sorry Diana Ross. beautiful song otherwise. - Submitted by: Steven Vandevoorde
