Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Front 242

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!).

Front 242's, "Neurobashing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Pull Off Pull Down Hands off Cuba!
The Real Lyrics:
Pull Up Pull Down Yeah...&c. &c.
The Story: Can't figure out how "yeah" or "ja!" and "Hands Off Cuba" sound like one another, but it sure sounds like the latter, and there is a sample of "get the heck out of Cuba" later in the song as well. - Submitted by: i32768
Front 242's, "U-Men"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And I don't defy U-Men.
The Real Lyrics:
Unidentified men
The Story: I always used to think this song was about scuba diving, since a U-Boot is an 'underwater boat', a U-Man must be an 'underwater man'. - Submitted by: Brandon Campbell
Front 242's, "Welcome to Paradise "
The Misheard Lyrics:
Feel like K-Lite is going nowhere
The Real Lyrics:
Feel like your life is going nowhere
The Story: In the late 1980s, K-Lite was an adult contemporary radio station in Houston, Texas. - Submitted by: Bob
