Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Gloria Estefan

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 Misheard Lyrics:
Friskiman's gonna get you
The Real Lyrics:
Rhythm is gonna get you
The Story: My brother and I first heard this song when we were quite young (8 and 6 I think.) We heard the words 'Rhythm is' as Friskiman. The song scared my brother because he thought Friskiman was like the Boogie man or something. We asked our mom what she means by Friskiman. She told us the actual lyrics. - Submitted by: Erin
