Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons

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!).

Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons', "December 1963 (Oh What A Night)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And as I recall it ended my pursuit
The Real Lyrics:
And as I recall it ended much too soon
The Story: I was listening to this song in my car, and of course singing it at the top of my lungs -- I love it. And when it came to that line, I belted it 'and as I recall it ended my pursuit', and my sister would not stop laughing at me before kindly explaining to me that the correct lyrics were 'much too soon'... I am still convinced that they say 'my pursuit', it makes sense doesn't it? She walked into the room and ended the guy's pursuit... not much too soon. That's just silly. - Submitted by: Carla
