Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Golden Girls Theme Song

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!).

Golden Girls Theme Song's, "Thank You for Being a Friend"
The Misheard Lyrics:
We both see the biggest gift will be for me
and the heart attack would say:
'Thank you for being a friend.'
The Real Lyrics:
You will see the biggest gift will be from me
and the card attatched would say:
'Thank you for being a friend.'
The Story: My friend and I watch this show all the time (don't laugh. It's a funny show), yet we misheard the lyric in the theme song. Of course it didn't sound right to me. After all, how can a heart attack talk? I searched online for the lyrics. When I finally found it, I blushed. How could we get the lyrics wrong like that? I laugh at it now. - Submitted by: Chris Smith
