Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Geri Halliwell

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!).

Geri Halliwell's, "G.A.Y"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Jimmy, why?
The Real Lyrics:
G.A.Y
The Story: My dad brought me a tape and this song was a bonus track included, I must have listened to that song thousands of times before I questioned why the song was called G.A.Y when not once in the song did it say it, then it kind of dawned on me after about half an hour. - Submitted by: Jordan
Geri Halliwell's, "It's Raining Men"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's a rain in May.
The Real Lyrics:
It's raining men.
The Story: My mother was convinced that Geri sang, 'It's a rain in May'. Actually it sounds more logical too. When it rains in May, she sings one hell of a funny song. - Submitted by: Pinguin
Geri Halliwell's, "It's Raining Men"

The Real Lyrics:
It's raining men.
