Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Gap Band

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!).

Gap Band's, "Early In The Morning"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hail no Capo.
The Real Lyrics:
Early in the morning.
The Story: I was very very young and I was reading Mad Magazine that had some skit about the mafia and a Capo. So I'm hearing this song and I'm telling my mom what the lyrics are and she just shook her head, saying I had a vivid imagination. As I look at it now, my translation makes absolutely no sense at all. - Submitted by: Chess613
