Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Good Charlotte

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!).

I'll never loose a rat poem.
The Real Lyrics:
Another loser anthem
The Story: I was listening to my sister's cd without her knowing it. The only way she found out was that when she came home I was singing it really loud.
