Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Guy Sebastian

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!).

Guy Sebastian's, "Elevator Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Tell me it's over, so we can dupe it all again
I'm addicted to this salivating love.
The Real Lyrics:
Tel' me it's over, so we can do it all again
I'm addicted to this elevator love.
The Story: My friend and I heard it on the radio long before we knew the name of the song. We couldn't figure out what it really said. "Salivating Love" just didn't seem right, but we had to look it up. - Submitted by: Alex Mack
Guy Sebastian's, "Receive the Power"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Receive the Flower to feed a life unto the world!
The Real Lyrics:
Receive the Power to be a light unto the world!
The Story: If you didn't know what is Receive the Power it is a song written by Guy Sebastian and Gary Pinto if you didn't know what is the hidden message of this World Youth Day Theme song is the line that if you misheard it it will say Receive The Flower to feed a light unto the World - Submitted by: A Cheese-Headed Bean Boy
