Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Eurythmics

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!).

Eurythmics', "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Sweet Jesus, wait for me.
The Real Lyrics:
Sweet dreams are made of this.
The Story: A friend's mother (a elderly Pennsylvania Dutch, religious woman. Sadly he and his mother are both deceased) kept telling us about this "religious song" she was hearing by the Eurythmics. He replied, "Mom , They NEVER wrote a religious song". She said, "They sure did." And she started to sing it for us, and out came "Sweet Jesus, wait for me..." We excused ourselves, then laughed so hard we cried all the way home. - Submitted by: Joseph Hancharik
