Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Eddie Money

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!).

Eddie Money's, "I think I'm in love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I think I'm in love, and it's all coming on
I think I'm in love, 'cause I can't get it off me
The Real Lyrics:
I think I'm in love, and my life's lookin' up
I think I'm in love, 'cause I can't get enough
The Story: I just liked to sing it a lot, and my cousin started a band, and he had the guitar tabs to the song and I was reading them, and wanted to show him the cool lyric. I was embarrassed because I was wrong. - Submitted by: Lauri ann Peek
Eddie Money's, "Shakin'"

Rosanna's caddy had a cart she loved to drive.
The Real Lyrics:
Rosanna`s daddy had a car she loved to drive.
The Story: My friend drew swore up and down these were the lyrics. Do you really think this hot chick took Eddie Money golfing? - Submitted by: Jason Reeher
Eddie Money's, "Shakin'"
The Misheard Lyrics:
We did some shakin' till the middle of the night.
The Real Lyrics:
Her tits were shakin' till all through the night.
The Story: I once see an interview of Eddie himself asked the question about "tits" in his song, he said it himself, he got a lot of grief for it so he changed it. But the song sure is about tits going up and down and moving round and round. - Submitted by: Ross Turcotte
Eddie Money's, "Take Me Home Tonight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I can feel your heart beat, fatso.
The Real Lyrics:
I can feel your heart beat faster.
The Story: I thought he was singing to a fat chick. - Submitted by: Davis
Eddie Money's, "Take Me Home Tonight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just like a waterslide,
be my little baby
The Real Lyrics:
Just like Ronnie said,
be my little baby
The Story: I thought it was a sexual reference, or he just really likes water parks. Picture the waterslide and the singer splashing through while he's singing it. It's really funny. I will always sing it this way. - Submitted by: Kurt
Eddie Money's, "Take Me Home Tonight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just like we're outta sight.
The Real Lyrics:
Just like Ronnie says.
The Story: My husband had no idea what this line actually said, and asked me what I thought. He liked what I thought I heard and he started singing the wrong line also. Funny, two people in a car singing the wrong line at the same time and thinking it sounds good. :0) - Submitted by: anabel
Eddie Money's, "Take Me Home Tonight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just like what it says
Feed my little baby
The Real Lyrics:
Just like Ronnie said
Be my little baby
The Story: I always thought that this was what the lyric was, and I was driving around with my wife the other day, and I said listen to this song, the lyrics don't make any sense. 'Why is he trying to get with her and then have out of the blue have her say 'feed my little baby.' My wife laughed for the next fifteen minutes. I just thought it was another case of 80s style over substance; I guess in my own way I was right. - Submitted by: Jim Macdonald
Eddie Money's, "Take Me Home Tonight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Let's sit on a chestnut runny sack
The Real Lyrics:
Listen honey, just like Ronnie sang
The Story: I heard this lyric dozens of times and could never figure out what he was saying. - Submitted by: giantslor
Eddie Money's, "Take Me Home Tonight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Listen honey
Just like the Rani said
"Be my little baby"
The Real Lyrics:
Listne honey
Just like Ronnie sang
"Be my little baby"
The Story: I was in the car, it was kinda noisy, and I was listening to this song. I'm a big fan of the TV show "Doctor Who" and one of my favorite characters if a villianess called The Rani. When I heard that line of the song, I could've sworn that they'd mentioned the Rani in a song. However, when I got home, I looked up the lyrics, and they really said Ronnie, as in the leader of the Ronnettes. Then again, it's kind of an easy mistake to make. "Rani" and "Ronnie" sound a lot alike - Submitted by: T Y

The Misheard Lyrics:
My boat's not watertight
The Real Lyrics:
Just like Ronnie sang...
The Story: That's how my kids heard it when they were little. - Submitted by: Mike

Big tent to have a field

Kinda gets a good boy tonight

Big deal, tell ya how I feel
Hangin' around the house all night
Good guns, it isn't much fun
Kinda gets a good boy tonight
The Story: According to the lyrics on the record album, those are actual lyrics, not the ones on the Internet. - Submitted by: Mickey D.
