Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Gorky Park

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:
My pretty son is crying.
My pretty son is crying.
The crying for you.
.The waiting for you.
I'm waiting for you.
The Real Lyrics:
My candles are crying.
My candles are crying.
They're crying for you.
They're waiting for you.
I'm waiting for you.
The Story: When I hear this song for the first time on radio, I don't know who singing this song? I just know that they're singing it as "son" not "candles" and I don't know that band. When I search a artist who singing this song on Google with the Western words and incorrect band name, the result was not found and only found correct band name and information about slow rock. First time I search it on local sites that know with slow rock and popular slow rock songs. But, an announcer from local radio station who held a slow rock program every one week at night know that who performing with this song is a local rock band who fame in the 1990s and early 2000s before came t.A.T.u. with "All the Things She Said". "Two Candles" was playing on radio stations multiple times and became their greatest hit and highest position on Rock Channel's "Top Pop Songs of All Time". "Two Candles" was featuring Richard Marx on background vocals. Richard Marx was known for his greatest hit "Right Here Waiting" and also known for his songwriting of Vixen's "Edge of a Broken Heart". - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
