Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> DMX

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!).

DMX's, "Party On"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Ya'll gonna make me lose my mind,
Pumpkin Head, Pumpkin Head
The Real Lyrics:
Ya'll gonna make me lose my mind,
Up in here, up in here
The Story: The song really does sound like he's saying 'Pumpkin Head' in the chorus! They started playing this song in one of their mixes at the Palace Night Club in Hollywood. I was really excited to hear it so I started singing along to it as I danced, however, I was singing my version. Little known to me, my incoherence of the song lead to alot of glances from the other partiers. - Submitted by: Terry Shea

DMX's, "Party Up"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Yabbo make me lose my mind
The Real Lyrics:
Y'all gonna make me lose my mind
The Story: When I was at work, this song was playing on the radio. I had just told a male co-worker that 'yabbo' was slang for a woman's breast. In fact, I had ask a female co-worker if she knew who sang the song 'Yabbo'. She said she didn't know, because she apparently was not a big rap fan. Only later when I listened more carefully that I realized my error. - Submitted by: soul ii

Y'all gonna make me act the fool
Up in here, up in here.
The Story: I heard this song as I was driving down the road...only because the teenagers in the car with me wanted to listen to their music. I thought that somebody had found a way to make Shakespeare current for this generation. I was just about to tell these young people all about Othello, but something inside of me told me to keep my mouth shut. This was one time when that inner voice was right...and I decided to listen to it. - Submitted by: Johnny WhiteBoy
