Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Haircut 100

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
Where do we go from here?
Is it down to the Lake of Fear?
The Real Lyrics:
Where does it go from here?
Is it down to the lake, I fear?
The Story: My wife and I always liked this song, and we both were sure that it was about going to the Lake of Fear (I think there really is one somewhere). We were amazed when somebody told us a year ago that the lyrics were something else - we just didn't believe it at first, but now - after 30 years - we have accepted it. We still think that our version is better though! - Submitted by: Steve Marshall
