Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> From First To Last

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!).

Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Bodycount album at
From First To Last's, "Make War"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I don't dig up the living corpses
Of sea orchids, I just court them.
The Real Lyrics:
I don't dig up the living corpses
Of scene whore kids, I just court them.
The Story: I actually spent quite some time agonizing over what a 'sea orchid' was, before I learned the actual lyric - which of course fits much better with the context of the song. - Submitted by: Nat
From First To Last's, "Secrets Don't Make Friends"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You were always my enemy
I can't believe you crapped in my eye.
The Real Lyrics:
You were always my enemy
And carefully crafted my demise.
The Story: My friend loves to sing, but she never seems to know the right lyrics. She doesn't care so she just sings whatever it sounds like or makes something up. I caught her singing this song and it was amusing. - Submitted by: julie
