Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Doors

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!).

L.A. Woman album at
Doors', "Light My Fire"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Carmen baby light my fire
Chatter set the night on fire
The Real Lyrics:
Come on baby light my fire
try to set the night on fire
The Story: When I first heard this song, I thought the singer was some dumb illiterate hippie with a girlfriend named Carmen, who was sitting there watching a kiddie show on tv{think it was Wonderama]that featured a chipmunk cartoon called Chatter,so the hippie was repeating aloud what he was watching then put his girlfiend's name in there and got a hit record.Maybe I was right? - Submitted by: Bob Alinkofsky
