Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Frankie Valli & 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!).

Beggin' album at
Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons', "Big Girls Don't Cry"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Pill-ow fi-ght
The Real Lyrics:
Big girls don't cry.
The Story: I was a young pre-teen in the '60s when this song hit the airwaves. No kidding, I thought that the band was singing pill-ow fi-ght (pillow fight). My young brain somehow associated the lyrics with one of my favorite pastimes :). Frankie's falsetto probably added to my misinterpretation of the lyrics. - Submitted by: Colin Banfield
Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons', "My Eyes Adored You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
So close and Jackson Five.
The Real Lyrics:
So close and yet so far.
The Story: Growing up In Nicargaua, I always wondered what Jackson Five had to do with this song. - Submitted by: Maria Eugenia Cohen
