Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Eminem

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!).

Eminem's, "Cleaning Out My Closet"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got some skelomens in my closet
And I don't know how to dispose of it.
The Real Lyrics:
I got some skeletons in my closet
And I don't know if no one knows it.
The Story: My litter brother sings it this way. When you ask him what a skelomon is, he goes, "I not talking to you!!" It's so cute! - Submitted by: D.J.
Eminem's, "Guilty Conscience"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You gonna listen to a guy who slapped T-Boz
The Real Lyrics:
You gonna listen to a guy who slapped Dee Barnes
The Story: For the longest time I didn't know who Dre had slapped, until I got this e-mail that you add you favorite lyric to. In place of who he slapped I put a note that said if any one knew who it was to e-mail me. One of my friends e-mailed me, and told me it was T-Boz. So for several months I sung it with T-Boz in there. I went to a lyrics site for Eminem and found out that it was Dee Barnes, but I still don't know why. - Submitted by: Nyla Howell

Thereís vomit on his sweater already, Momís spaghetti.
The Story: During Christmas Eve dinner my brother was mumbling the correct lyrics, and I couldn't help but ask why 'Mom's spaghetti' would be in an Emineim song. He went through his explanation.

Eminem's, "Stan"
The Misheard Lyrics:
My teas gone cold
I'm wonderin' why I got out of bed at all

And I can see it all
And even if I could it would all be great
Put your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad, not so bad.
The Real Lyrics:
My tea's gone cold
I'm wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window
And I can't see at all
And even if I could, it'll all be gray
But your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad, not so bad.
The Story: I think I was about 13 when I first heard this song.. I was wondering why somone would make love to a window and just how that would work out. That is, until my mother had let me know what was actually said. - Submitted by: Angel
Eminem's, "Stan"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Son of a b*tch
The Real Lyrics:
Shut up, b*tch
The Story: My father heard the censored version on the radio the other day, so he heard 'Shut up, ____'. Then, he said, 'He just said 'son of a ____', didn't he?' Fortunately, it was the censored version, so I was able to convince him that it was 'shut up' he heard. The idea was there, however. (I would have had a hard time trying to explain why Stan called his girlfriend a derogatory term used exclusively on men.) - Submitted by: Blooming Idiot

Am I too nice? Buy you ice?

The Real Lyrics:
Am I too nice? Buy you ice?
B***h if you died wouldn't buy you life.
The Story: My daughter told me the correct lyrics and we argued about who was right. I told her 'buy you life' is nonsensical because life isn't for sale but she corrected me and stated you can buy a heart transplant, a new liver, etc. which could extend your life. - Submitted by: Angiedee
Eminem's, "Superman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Boy, you drive me crazy!
B****, you make me Earl.
The Real Lyrics:
