Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Donnie Iris

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!).

The Real Lyrics:
Ah! Leah!
The Story: I thought the guy was singing about his Chinese friend, Ahn Lee, or something like that. But singing about your Chinese guy friend seemed sort of a strange thing to sing about on rock music radio. I never knew what the lyric really was. Do you want to know why? Because the DJ's never gave it! - Submitted by: Froggie
