Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Freddy Fender

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!).

Freddy Fender's, "Wasted Days And Wasted Nights"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Weightless gays and hasteless wifes
The Real Lyrics:
Wasted days and wasted nights
The Story: To make this brief I had to go into the doctor for severe back pain. So I was given some strange shot that was supposed to make the pain 'roll away'. As we started driving home the pain hadn't ceased for a few minutes but then all of a sudden it felt like I was on a roller coaster and the car was going 150 miles per hour. Then 'Wasted Days and Wasted Nights' came on. My pain rolled away and I was a little dillusional. That's why I think it sounded like 'Weightless gays and hasteless wifes'. (Editor's note: The correct word is 'wives'.) - Submitted by: Noohd Munkibuch
