Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Gorillaz

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!).

Gorillaz's, "19-2000"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's amusing that we're juice
The Real Lyrics:
It's the music that we choose.
The Story: I've always heard it this way and I never really got why, I just dealt with it until I found a lyric video and now it makes more sense. - Submitted by: truK
Gorillaz's, "Clint Eastwood"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Didn't happen, I'm feelin' bad,
I got sunshine,
Eh, not bad,
I'm a mess but not for long
My future is comin' on
The Real Lyrics:
Ain't happy I'm feelin' glad,
I got sunshine in a bag,
I'm useless but not for long
The future it's comin' on.
The Story: I always loved this song but it took me five years to find out that it wasn't the case. I still hear it. - Submitted by: Some Guy
Gorillaz's, "Dare"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm coming up, I'm coming up, I'm coming up
I'm coming up the stairs
Ah, the stairs.
The Real Lyrics:
It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up
It's coming up, it's dare
Ah, it's dare.
The Story: When I heard it on the radio, I was doing a job carrying a box up the stairs. I was thinking about how heavy it was...thinking of the word 'stairs'. - Submitted by: Harry
Gorillaz's, "Dare"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Never did no ham! Never did no ham! It's there!
The Real Lyrics:
Never did no harm! Never did no harm! It's dare!
The Story: This is what I heard at the "Demon Days" concert. You should listen to Shaun Ryder on the Demon Days live on Youtube. It's really funny. - Submitted by: Kaeden Irvine
Gorillaz's, "Dare"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You've got a breadstick on you
You just think it, that's the voo-doo, baby
Hold it down now.
The Real Lyrics:
You've got to press it on you
You just think it, that's what you do, baby
Hold it down there.
The Story: I felt like a pillock for walking into my work singing, "You've got a breadstick on you." - Submitted by: Christine
Gorillaz's, "Feel Good, Inc."
The Misheard Lyrics:
Been there when their father landed.
The Real Lyrics:
Windmill, windmill for the land
The Story: I come from Singapore, where our pronunciation of English words are somewhat different. When the artists drag their words like in the song, we sometimes get a different (and comical) interpretation of the lyrics. - Submitted by: Anonymous

The Misheard Lyrics:
Dingbell, dingbell for the man

Gorillaz's, "Kids With Guns"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Turning his head to what's done
Turning his head to fire
The Real Lyrics:
Turning us into fire
Turning us into monsters
It's all desire.
The Story: I seriously thought for the last several years this was the lyric. Honestly it put a bigger visual in my head of a kid with a gun that had no idea what he was doing. I'm actually a little disappointed.... - Submitted by: Malisyn
Gorillaz's, "Rhinestone Eyes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Dad! I like big d***
The Real Lyrics:

The Story: Jfc that's all I ever hear in that song, I can't even listen to it seriously when that part comes. - Submitted by: AA
