Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Gerry and the Pacemakers

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!).

Gerry and the Pacemakers', "Ferry 'Cross The Mersey"
The Misheard Lyrics:
So Mary Crustumverzey
The Real Lyrics:
So ferry 'cross the Mersey
The Story: My younger sister thought this song was about a girl named Mary Crustumverzey back when it was a hit in the 60's, rather than a song about taking a ferry to go home, across the river named Mersey in England. - Submitted by: Cherry O'Neill
Gerry and the Pacemakers', "You'll Never Walk Alone"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You never wore Cologne
The Real Lyrics:
You'll never walk alone
The Story: I was singing it at work, when all of a sudden everyone started to laugh, and I didn't know why, until they told me. - Submitted by: Timi Zhuo
