Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Heart

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!).

Heart's, "All I Wanna Do (Is Make Love To You)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
All I wanna do is fake love to you
or
All I wanna do is tape bugs to you
or
All I wanna do is fake Fudd's 'yoohoo'
or
All I wanna do is take clubs to you
or
All I wanna view is clay stuck to you
or
All I wanna chew is snake gloves for you.
The Real Lyrics:
All I wanna do is make love to you.
The Story: If you had young children in the 90's (when this song got a lot of airplay), instant parodies were the way to avoid answering difficult questions while driving. - Submitted by: Martha

Heart's, "Alone"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And my love for you is still undo.
Alone.
The Real Lyrics:
And my love for you is still unknown.
Alone.
The Story: When I hear this song for the first time as an unknown song in radio and later I hear it again as "Alone" by Ann Wilson's band in my phone, I feel misheard. Because, that line is referring to how Ann Wilson undoing back her recording to the beginning rather than to know her love for a man. That's funny? About this song: Featured on their album 'Bad Animals' in 1987, this song was topping on Billboard's Pop Chart. In Indonesia, listeners only know "Alone" and not found on other recording from Ann Wilson's band. Usually, there are more than one song beside "Alone" that found on downloadable sites. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji

The Real Lyrics:
