Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Greg Kihn Band

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!).

Greg Kihn Band's, "Jeopardy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I love the Japanese, ladies.
The Real Lyrics:
Our love's in jeopardy, baby.
The Story: My 'English as his second language' boyfriend asked me if I had heard the song 'I love the Japanese ladies.' I said no, so he began to sing. I laughed so hard and then informed him of what he was really singing. He was a bit embarassed about the whole event. - Submitted by: kim
Greg Kihn Band's, "Jeopardy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I love you, Jeopardy, baby.
The Real Lyrics:
Our love's in jeopardy, baby.
The Story: Again, I was around 12 when this ditty came out, and I had no awareness of a game show by the same name. And all my classmates in that age group kept insisting I was wrong, but I stuck by my version until a few years later when I heard it remastered on CD and finally figured out the dadgum lyric. - Submitted by: Chris
Greg Kihn Band's, "Jeopardy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Our love is definitely...maybe.
The Real Lyrics:
Our love's in jeopardy, baby.
The Story: My mother is actually who misheard it. She said she was always saying how clever the lyric "Our love is definitely...maybe" was, until she found out what the real lyric was! :) - Submitted by: Brent
Greg Kihn Band's, "Reunited"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Fly United, with my baby
Uh uh uh...
The Real Lyrics:
Reunited, with my baby
Uh uh uh...
The Story: During the summer when this song hit the radio and MTV, me and a cohort were on a flight to Chicago and we were in a conversation with a lovely airline stewardess to kill some time. The jet was owned and operated by United Airlines. - Submitted by: Sgt = a Lady, So Go For a Jet! JET!
Greg Kihn Band's, "The Breakup Song"
The Misheard Lyrics:
B*****s don't ride on Grandaddy's Ford.
The Real Lyrics:
They just don't write like that anymore.
The Story: i knew they couldn't be the real lyrics, but that's all I could make out. I tried to ask a co-worker what the song was called, first by humming, then by whistling the melody-only making myself look sillier. Once I sang the song with the wrong lyrics, she knew what I was talking about and laughed and laughed at me. Eventually, she told me the real words once she caught her breath again. - Submitted by: joey b
