Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Falco

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!).

Falco's, "Rock Me Amadeus"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm the best I'm the best
The Real Lyrics:
Amadeus, Amadeus
The Story: Up until I was 15, I had never heard this song before. I had however heard the chorus, and mis-heard them as "I'm the Best, I'm the best". So, for several years I and my siblings would sometimes sing "I'm the best, I'm the best ooh ooh the best". Now that I have heard it and know what it actually says, I'm quite embarrassed about singing random lyrics for several years and thinking they belonged to a real song... - Submitted by: architextfett

Rock me' hot potatoes.
The Real Lyrics:
Rock me, Amadeus.
The Story: One day, in 1999 I was listening to this song on an '80s station. It was the first time I ever heard of the song. I thought it was 'Rock me Hot Potatoes'. Three years later on a day in March, I was listening to a station that played the top 40 hits on the same week back in 1986. I then heard the song again and the dj announced the real name. I laughed to myself. - Submitted by: Jason Knarr
