Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Enrique Iglesias

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!).

You can run, you can die

You can run, you can hide
But you can't esape my love
The Story: The first time I heard this song, I spent the week going around singing 'you can run, you can die...' until I realized how morbid that is! Why would he want her to die? I listened closely when I heard the song again, but I still heard 'die'...listen to it, too! It seriously sounds like he's saying 'die', not 'hide'. Hmm...I don't think I want to date Enrique Iglesias anymore. - Submitted by: SaraBooger

You can run, you can hide
But you cannot see my room.
The Real Lyrics:
You can run, you can hide
But you can't escape my love.
The Story: I was with my sister when this song came on the radio. She started going on about how stupid it is. When I asked her why, she said, 'You can run, you can hide, but you cannot see my room? What does that even mean?' So, of course, I laughed at her and set her straight. - Submitted by: Anne
