Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five

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:
I feel like an outlaw, broke my last glass jaw
The Real Lyrics:
I feel like an outlaw, broke my last Dad's jaw
The Story: The song is about extreme poverty and the reality of life for some living in the ghetto and all the dysfunctional-ism that it entails. The correct lyric, "broke my last Dad's jaw" indicates that it is talking about a woman who has lived with many different men that her son sees as just another loser Dad in the ghetto household. This mother marries or has shacked up with many different men. The son was in a fight with his mother's most recent boyfriend; just (another) one of his mother's live-in boyfriends and broke his jaw. (He broke his last Dad's jaw) in a fight. Then the next line says, meaning the "Dad" still wants to continue fighting after the son broke his jaw. Then the next line says, which means there is no stability or peace in the life of the person the song is portraying. - Submitted by: Rochelle C.
