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!).

I said, "Kyo hates monkeys! He says, 'F***ing, f***ing, monkey!'"... I swear! I was so funny. (It would have been if YOU personally were me or my friend; but as an outsider, you probably have little to no interest in my ramblings.) - Submitted by: Lerean

I wanna be a hoe like you.
I wanna be an anarchist, too.
The Story: I was listening to this song for the first time with my friend. We were talking and after the 3rd or 4th time Kyo said it, I said 'Hang on' and we listened intensely to the lyrics. We just cracked up laughing. 'I wanna be a hoe like you' over and over and over. We checked the lyrics later and it said 'I wanna be an Anarchist too' but I still believe it said what we heard. - Submitted by: Shinji
