Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> George Michael

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!).

The Story: My dad is actually the one who misheard this lyric back in the 80's. He would sing it very proudly in the car whenever the song came on. He thought it was 'bottom feeder' because we had just bought a fish tank and had made sure that there were bottom feeders to clean the tank. He couldn't understand why they were in the song, though. - Submitted by: Brandi
