Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Harlem World feat. Baby Stase

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:
Is my body so right
I can even track a d***?
The Real Lyrics:
Is my body so right
I can even attract a dyke?
The Story: Oh boy, I guess I was a somewhat sexually frustrated 14-year-old when I first saw the video for the song. Add to that the rapper Baby Stase's mumbling pronounciation and the fact that the word 'dyke' was edited out in the video version, and you can see why I heard 'attract' as 'track' and why I thought that the mysterious censored short word beginning with 'd' was most likely a reference to the male anatomy. I sang this for years, and since the song is very obscure, no one ever corrected me. Just for the record, I thought that my line meant that her body was in such good shape that she could see every curve of a guy' know...when she was having sex. I wish I had a funny story about finding out the correct lyrics, but I don't. I simply found them on the Internet one day and was very disappointed that my version was not correct. Me being 20 now, I still giggle when I think how dirty my mind was even back when I was 14. - Submitted by: Fiona
