Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Gretchen Wilson

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!).

Gretchen Wilson's, "Redneck Woman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And I hope that Oprah doesn't sing this song.
The Real Lyrics:
And I know all the words to every Ol' Bocephus song.
The Story: I recently saw a clip on E! channel about when Oprah Winfrey's show had a theme song with lyrics back in 1998. The commentators made fun of Oprah's attempt at singing. When I heard the line about Ol' Bocephus, I thought it funny that Oprah would attempt to sing country! - Submitted by: John Bocchino
Gretchen Wilson's, "Redneck Woman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll say 'hey y'all' and 'eat hog'.
The Real Lyrics:
I'll say 'hey y'all' and 'yee-haw'.
The Story: My friend didn't realize that she had misheard the lyrics, until she sang it karaoke at the bar one night. She actually said, "Hey y'all and eat hog" the first time it comes up in the song. - Submitted by: Katie
Gretchen Wilson's, "Redneck Woman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll say hey y'all, Andy Hall.
The Real Lyrics:
I'll say 'hey y'all' and 'yee-haw'.
The Story: My roommate and I actually had a conversation about who Andy Hall was. I said 'Since I like country music so much, I should really know who Andy Hall is!!' Hahaha... - Submitted by: Rachel Ward
Gretchen Wilson's, "Redneck Woman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm a redneck woman I ain't no high-glass frog
The Real Lyrics:
I'm a redneck woman I ain't no high-class fraud
The Story: My six-year-old niece always sang this song that way. When her mother told her how it really goes, she got so tickled that she decided she liked her own version better. - Submitted by: Eric Rawls
Gretchen Wilson's, "Redneck Woman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm just the pride of tougher raisin'
And I say, 'Hey y'all, ain't he hot?'
The Real Lyrics:
I'm just a product of my raisin'
And I say, 'Hey y'all!' and 'Yee haw!'
The Story: I used to hear this song all the time at work. To my surprise, I actually heard most of the lyrics right, but those two didn't make sense. Well, the 'tougher raisin' part does in a way, but I couldn't figure out what 'hey y'all, ain't he hot?' had to do with anything. After I cracked my country-music loving friend up with the misheard lyrics, I finally bothered to look up the real ones. - Submitted by: Lady Blues
Gretchen Wilson's, "Redneck Woman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I've got posters on my wall of Skynyrd gettin' straight.
The Real Lyrics:
I've got posters on my wall of Skynyrd, Kid and Strait.
The Story: I spent weeks trying to figure out what 'gettin' straight' meant. Then I asked somebody on an online country music forum, who explained the real lyrics. - Submitted by: John C
