Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Diana Ross & Supremes

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 & Supremes', "Stop In The Name Of Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Stop in the neighborhood
Before I break your arm
And I knoww-oww-oww.
The Real Lyrics:
Stop in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Think it over.
The Story: My baby sister was always the tomboy in the neighborhood. Well one summer, some neighbors of ours traded their son to his aunt's house Down South for his extremely cute cousin a couple years older than she up North here. Well the cousin had friends across town that he always spent time with, but my baby sister had the hugest crush on him. So she would always walk around singing that until our neighbor (his aunt) caught onto what she was really saying. It became a family joke. - Submitted by: tja2729
