Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Grease

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!).

Grease's, "Sandy"

Stranded at the drive-in, branded, of food.

Stranded at the drive-in, branded a fool.

Grease's, "The One That I Want"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You're the Wizard of Oz
The Real Lyrics:
You're the one that I want
The Story: My Grandmother took my younger brother and I to see the movie 'Grease' then the songs came on and she started singing, but she was singing 'your the Wizard of Oz' instead of 'Your the one that I want' and everyone heard her. I still haven't told her the real lyrics (I know I am mean, but its a good laugh!) - Submitted by: paperrosemarie
