Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Fall Out Boy

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!).

I'm yours

The Real Lyrics:

Stay thirsty like before
Don't you know that the kids aren't all, the kids aren't alright
The Story: One day, I was having some roast beef for brunch in my girlfriend's house, when she played a song on the radio that I never heard before. "I catch feels whenever I listen to this song", she said. After a minute, I was quite getting in the mood with her... Until the chorus came in, right while she was dripping some sauce in her plate. I simply burst out laughing. "What's wrong?", she asked me. "Sorry, I couldn't hear anything else, but: I'm yours, WHEN THE GRAVY POURS." She stared at me for a moment, and then we laughed so hard that we almost forgot to finish our plates. She didn't remember the right lyrics either. All I know is that I completely ruined this song for her. From that day, she told me that she can't listen to the chorus anymore without imagining Patrick Stump pouring gravy on someone else's plate, in the most romantic way possible. - Submitted by: Lucas C.

Fall Out Boy's, "The Phoenix"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Get hitched
Make a career out of Robin Banks
The Real Lyrics:
Get hitched
Make a career out of robbing banks
The Story: I was listening to this song in class and I was thinking, for the hundredth time, "who is Robin Banks?". So I looked him up - it turns out that Robin Banks is a motivational speaker, if that interests you - and I remember it just clicking that the lyrics were robbing banks. So I promptly told my friend, who laughed at me. - Submitted by: Aisling

I'm a leading man and the lies I weave
Are oh so intricate, oh so intricate.
The Story: I had no idea what this part of the song had to do with the rest of the song, much less the title of the song. But I had always suspected that Fall Out Boy had a more feminine side. :-) - Submitted by: Jt1421
Fall Out Boy's, "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race"
The Misheard Lyrics:
This ain't a scene, it's a g**d*** arm brace.
The Real Lyrics:
This ain't a scene, it's a g**d*** arms race.
The Story: This was when it first came out. I was listening to the radio, and just before he started to play the song, the DJ was talking about the video or something (I don't remember). When he was done, he was like "So, here's Fall Out Boy with 'This Ain't a Scene...'" Of course, I thought it was "arm brace", because as the DJ was saying the title, the intro had started playing, so I couldn't hear it right. I sang "arm brace" for the longest time, until I looked up the lyrics. - Submitted by: flipside

The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm not a shoulder to cry on, but I've got graves
The Real Lyrics:
I'm not a shoulder to cry on, but I digress
The Story: I was on my bus and I was singing it to 'myself' (The person behind and next to me and farther back), so I of course thought the song was somehow about how the person killed people and then instead of crying to them, they can go cry to the people they killed. The 2nd grader next to me loved that story by the way. - Submitted by: Michella

Fall Out Boy's, "Thnks fr th Mmrs"
The Misheard Lyrics:
In hotel rooms, collecting patience for lovers.
The Real Lyrics:
In hotel rooms, collecting page six lovers.
The Story: I was playing one of those "guess the song" games on a message board I go on. You were given a few lines of a song, and you ahd to guess what song that was and who sang it. So, I decided to post some lyrics from TFTM. I put, "I only think in the form of crunching numbers/In hotel rooms, collecting patience for lovers". There was a HUGE gap between the times of my post and the next one, in which someone wrote, "It's 'collecting page six lovers, not collecting patience for lovers'." haha no wonder why no one else could get it! - Submitted by: flipside
Fall Out Boy's, "Uma Thurman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She likes to dance like "Ooh I'm fartin'"
The Real Lyrics:
She likes to dance like Uma Thurman.
The Story: I was listening to the radio of my town, with 3 of my friends and the song came on and we all of course started dancing. When we heard the lyric we suddenly thought we heard "She liked to dance like oooh I'm fartin'" and from then on we always have joked about it and sung that when it comes on. - Submitted by: Mellissa
Fall Out Boy's, "Uma Thurman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She likes to dance like ooh, a sermon.
The Real Lyrics:
She likes to dance like Uma Thurman.
The Story: I was utterly convinced they were singing about someone dancing like a sermon. There are plenty of religious references in the song, so it makes sense. I argued vehemently for it with a friend and was proven wrong by the name of the song. - Submitted by: TheGoFish

Fall Out Boy's, "West Coast Smoker"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And I throw this, I'm not addicted to you
Fall Out Boy, disorganized religion of my head
And we'll never get through customs
Let's just take off the bed instead
But 1-2-3 in the gutter
My broken, you're the dogs of the ivy league
The Real Lyrics:
And that's all that should matter t-t-to you
Follow the disorganized religion of my head
And we'll never get through customs
Let's just take off again instead
Got my degree in the gutter
My heart broken in the dorms of the ivy league
The Story: I can hear almost all of the correct lyrics now, except for the "heart" in "My heart broken in the dorms of the ivy league"? It just sounds like he's pronouncing "my" as if its two syllables long for some reason.... - Submitted by: WhyDoYouNeedMyName
Fall Out Boy's, "Where Did the Party Go"
The Misheard Lyrics:
This is the story of how they met
He wrote her a song on a pack of cigarettes
The Real Lyrics:
This is the story of how they met
Her picture was on the back of a pack of cigarettes
The Story: Pat mumbles this verse, and so my mind just filled in the words for him. To be honest, my version is cuter! ;) - Submitted by: Dat Emo Chick
