Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Evelyn Thomas

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
I am the jinx
The Real Lyrics:
High Energy
The Story: Years ago, my still best friend came up to me at my locker in high school one day, very excited, that I had to hear this "great dance song"...."I am the Jinx." I had no idea what song she was talking about so she sang part of it. When I hear the melody she was singing I turned to her and sarcastically asked, "Do you mean High Energy?!?!"....she shut up and walked away. To this day any time we here that song I'll look at her and start singing, "I am the Jinx"! - Submitted by: Andi
