Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Donna Summer

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!).

Donna Summer's, "Hot Stuff"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I mean hot stuff
The Real Lyrics:
I need hot stuff
The Story: Because I thought Donna was actually saying "I mean hot stuff," I sang the lyrics as "I mean hot stuff," and I sang them like I meant business. When I stayed with my grandma and grandpa (both of whom are dead now) back in 1989 when they lived in Thonotosassa, Florida, I sang the lyrics as "I mean hot stuff" (it seemed worth it to me at the time). I even WROTE the lyrics "I mean hot stuff" on a piece of paper. My grandma had given me a special doodle pad in which the ink in the pens show up as different colors when you draw on the pages, and I wrote the lyrics as "I mean hot stuff." - Submitted by: Isac

The Story: We were driving up to North Carolina to go whitewater rafting when one of the guys put on a cd with a bunch of disco songs. This song came on, and I asked, 'The hell? Is she saying she wants 'pasta'?' They laughed for the next fifteen minutes or so. I didn't. I swear, she's saying 'pasta' in that song. - Submitted by: Michael Taylor
