Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> FYA

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!).

FYA's, "Too Hot To Handle"
The Misheard Lyrics:
We're too hot
Let's do the tango.
The Real Lyrics:
We're too hot
We're too hot to handle.
The Story: My sister can be blamed here for apparently 'not being able to hear what they're saying' (though I'm pretty sure only 1% of the population would advocate her words there, if we're to be charitable). I suppose the misheard line sort of makes sense if one puts their mind to it. Tango's a slow-ish dance, so if you've been shaking your stuff on the floor in a bustling environment for a while you would want to cool off one way or another but keep grooving. So what better way to do so than a spot of tango? - Submitted by: Missy Bass
