Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Gary Wright

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!).

Best of the Dream Weaver album at
Gary Wright's, "Dream Weaver"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Bead Weaver
The Real Lyrics:
Dream Weaver
The Story: I overheard my father singing. As I listened, I realized that he was singing 'Bead Weaver' instead of 'Dream Weaver'. I asked him what he was singing, just to be sure of what I was hearing, and when he told me I busted out laughing. I then explained to him what the lyrics really are, and he thought it was pretty funny, too. - Submitted by: Jonathan Woolston
