Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Green Day

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!).

Green Day's, "Give Me Novacaine"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll never get high.
The Real Lyrics:
Oh, novocaine.
(guitar solo begins)
The Story: Personally, I think my misheard lyric is better than the original, especially within the context of the album's narrative (for those who don't know the album, "American Idiot" tells a story). Particularly, in the arc regarding the main character's drug use, set up in the song "Jesus of Suburbia" (to fall in love and fall in debt / to alcohol and cigarettes / and Mary Jane to keep me insane / doing someone else's cocaine). In direct contrast, when he moves out and leaves for the city befriending St. Jimmy (I subscribe to the different people theory), and begins to realize that a life of drugs isn't actually that fulfilling, and begins to question if this is what he really wants, evidenced in the misheard line: his first proclamation that the rebellion he'd been fighting since his adolescence. - Submitted by: Hunter
Green Day's, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"

Another turnip and a fork stuck in the road
Please ask the alien and the farmer's wife to hold.
The Real Lyrics:
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.
The Story: I know people might think I just made up this really random line, but I heard this song about six years ago and have been pondering it since. I knew those weren't the actual lyrics, but it always reminded me of 'the old man and the turnip' this kiddie's book I read when I was little. I think the song would be a lot more intresting if these were the lyrics. LOL! If you actually listen to the song, these words miraculously fit in. - Submitted by: Rage
Green Day's, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Another turnip on a fork stuck in the road.
The Real Lyrics:
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road.
The Story: Although this seemed like a really silly lyric, once I heard the word 'turnip', I couldn't conceive of any other definition of the word 'fork' and thought those must be the words. It's funny the tricks your mind plays. - Submitted by: Kathy Keefe
Green Day's, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Dads on trial
The Real Lyrics:
Dead skin on trial
The Story: When I first heard the song I always thought that line was about dads being on trial. I wondered why that line didn't really fit with the rest of the song. A while later when I was watching a Seinfeld retropect with captioning, and I saw the line 'dead skin' (when the song was playing over selected clips), the song made a lot more sense. - Submitted by: pikapal

Green Day's, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"
The Misheard Lyrics:

Green Day's, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Tom grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.
The Real Lyrics:
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.

And I said "Haha You're Dead by Green Day" And she's all "OH! I thought they were saying "I humped your friends. And sometimes it even sounded like they were saying 'I hopped your fence.' I'm guessing that it sounded that way because she couldn't hear the song properly from the other room! - Submitted by: Stephanie

The Misheard Lyrics:
Sing high to the President's gasmen
The Real Lyrics:
Sieg heil to the President gasman
The Story: Was listening to the song in public when I finally figured out what it meant. Awkward. I had just watched a certain intense scene from the tv series, OZ, where the phrase "Sieg Heil" was used (in an attack against a Nazi).

At least the way I used to sing the song allowed for that part to be sung publicly. - Submitted by: Wendla

The Real Lyrics:
Pay attention to the cracked streets
And the broken homes.
The Story: Mike (Dirnt) is Green Day's bassist. His nose juts out at about halfway down. And as far as I know, your nose can only be that way if you've broken your nose.
