Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Freestylers

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
My definition is the don
With the kgb in a brand new song
The Real Lyrics:
My definition is the don
with the kev in a brand new song
The Story: I'd been singing it this way (wrongly) for about a year and no one else could help out and correct me. Partly becasue it was a pretty obscure track (British breakbeat with these two rappers freestyling over the top) and then I'm like 'I need the rest of the lyrics'. The only site I could find (the really dodgy official one) had just the first verse and there it was: kev, I have to admit that it makes a bit more sense than kgb (the old ussr secret police) and doesn't create the imagery that I'd always got (another British traitor to communism) - Submitted by: Harry
