Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Fat Joe, Ashanti, Ja Rule

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!).

Fat Joe, Ashanti, Ja Rule's, "What's Love?"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's about us
It's about chest pain.
The Real Lyrics:
It's about us
It's about trust, hey.
The Story: My mom and I both thought these were the actual lyrics, but neither of us were entirely fond of the song, so neither of us decided to actually look it up. We were finally corrected one day by my sister when it came on the radio. My mom asked her 'Did she just say 'It's about us, it's about chest pain?'' My sister corrected us and we all laughed. My mom and I still sing it that way when it's on the radio to this day. - Submitted by: Tiffany
