Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Faith No More

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!).

Faith No More's, "Epic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You want it all but you can't have you?
The Real Lyrics:
You want it all but you can't have it.
The Story: This is the surrealist music video ever in the world! One of the surrealist music video ever because I dreaming in the new music video it feature a city where young boys, cute girls, and childrens live in that city is being crush by the animals after their jungles are broken by the peoples who don't care with the environmental. That city is the main cover in this single that also featuring Mike Patton singing jumping like fish jumping from water into the land. Comfortably, the lyrics of this song which was the band wrote is written about how peoples want everything such as chicken noodle, meatballs, fried rice, chicken soup, fried chicken, etc. but peoples can't have it at all. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
Faith No More's, "Falling to Pieces"
The Misheard Lyrics:
But I know, there's a pizza for me
The Real Lyrics:
But I know, there's a picture beneath
The Story: Cruising in my car on a hot summer night, my sister and I singing along while blasting their Epic album. We always sang this line and often discussed the mystery as to just what the hidden meaning must be for. "...there's a pizza for me". Perhaps a reference to female anatomy (pizza PIE)??? - Submitted by: Heidi
Faith No More's, "From Out Of Nowhere"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I am nineteen fellows
I re-can joy.
The Real Lyrics:
All energy funnels
All becomes you.
The Story: I was in a band around that time, and these are the lyrics I used to sing on stage when covering this song. They hadn't invented the Internet yet and I only found out the real words this evening! - Submitted by: Richard Braithwaite
Faith No More's, "From Out Of Nowhere"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I know you see me, Jonathan Gillott.
The Real Lyrics:
I know you see me, our eyes interlock.
The Story: I was riding my bike the first time I listened to the song, and swore he was singing about me, because that's my name. When my brother and I were young, he would pronounce the 'Jonathan' as more like 'Jaw-than', and that's totally what this song sounded like. - Submitted by: DarkJon64
Faith No More's, "From Out of Nowhere"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You come from Ottawa, Noah
My glands turn rather stale
The Real Lyrics:
You come from out of nowhere
My glance turns to a stare
The Story: It was never clear what the song was about and the smattering of snatched lyrics didn't help. What was important was the propulsive sound and sense of weirded-out intelligence behind the song. That and the soft undulations of Sarah Oates' breasts as she moved to it with tentative abandon. The cord is frayed but sheets of vicious barbs course along my arms still, when I think on her. A broken terrarium, an echo of a plea across a motorway, the bitter tasting joy of her vagina. - Submitted by: Gular Scute
Faith No More's, "Midlife Crisis"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You're menstruating hard.
The Real Lyrics:
Your menstruating heart.
The Story: This lyric always puzzled me. I used to have the song on tape, so I had no lyric-sheet with it (and Mike Patton doesn't sing very audibly in this song. At first I thought that the song was about a woman in her menopause, after all the song is called 'Midlife Crisis', but that seemed too strange. After that I thought his girlfriend was giving him a hard time, while she was having her period. When I finally bought the cd and read the lyrics, the song became crystal-clear. I'm glad my lyrics don't sound that different from the correct ones, which probably saved me from some odd looks! - Submitted by: Timhotep
Faith No More's, "RV"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Castrate some cockroaches on the steps...
The Real Lyrics:
Newscasters, cockroaches, and desserts...
The Story: Yeah, it doesn't make any sense but he's mumbling the words really low in the verses. How would one accomplish that anyway, tweezers? - Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
