Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Fabolous

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!).

More Street Dreams, Pt. 2: The Mixtape album at
Fabolous', "Holla Back (Young'n)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Holla back young and...(whoo whoo)
The Real Lyrics:
Holla back young'n (whoo whoo)
The Story: Not really a mishearing, but more a misunderstanding of what the lyrics meant. I thought for the longest time that the line meant 'holla back, young and Fabolous', as in the rapper's nickname, only the word 'Fabolous' was replaced by 'whoo whoo'. It was only about 2 years after the song came out that I learned that 'young'n' is actually Southern us slang for 'young one', as in young girl, so he was actually telling a girl to 'holla back' at him, not advertising himself as 'young and Fabolous'! I live in Canada, and I have never heard this phrase used here, so that's why I misunderstood this lyric. - Submitted by: m
