Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Grass Roots

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!).

Grass Roots', "Temptation Eyes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna ralph on my self.
The Real Lyrics:
I want her all for myself.
The Story: I thought that perhaps the singer was suggesting that the woman in the song had such an impact on him that he was gonna 'ralph' ( another word for vomit) on himself. Now thats true love. - Submitted by: Fang
Grass Roots', "Temptation Eyes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I want a lock on my cell
The Real Lyrics:
I want her all for myself
The Story: We were riding in the car on our way to our house in Massachusetts, and my mom put in the cd. It came onto this song, and just as I was wondering why it mentioned a lock on his cell, and my dad said 'That says 'I want her all for myself,' but I always thought it was 'I want a lock on my cell.' Listen, that's what it sounds like!!'Figures. - Submitted by: ~*^Girl^*~
