Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Go West

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!).

Go West's, "King Of Wishful Thinking"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I don't need to fall at your feet, just 'cause you called me to the phone.
The Real Lyrics:
I don't need to fall at your feet, just 'cause you cut me to the bone.
The Story: This song came out in the 80s when I was a teenager and I've always thought the line was "just 'cause you called me to the phone". It's only been in the last few days I finally figured out it's really "just 'cause you cut me to the bone", and it's been over 30 years LOL. - Submitted by: Edward
