Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Heather Dale

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!).

Heather Dale's, "Sedna"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Sedna on the Dee,
The cold forgotten Dee.
The Real Lyrics:
Sedna roamed the deep,
The cold forgotten deep.
The Story: I saw a posting on for Heather Dale. Not knowing anything about her, I checked her artist summary on, where I saw only anagrams of her name posted. Since that told me scarcely anything about her, I looked up more about her, including her songs, elsewhere. The song Sedna caught my interest, as I wondered if it were connected with the dwarf planet of that name. I played it on youtube, finding the lyrics very hard to understand, so I still didn't know for sure what the song is about. But what little I could make out seems to be more about the Inuit goddess for whom the dwarf planet is named than for the dwarf planet. So I checked a lyrics site to see if I could find out the real lyrics. Somebody heard them well enough to present a coherent version on that site, revealing the above correction to my mishearing. Furthermore, they tell a story common to the various versions of the mythology of Sedna, and make no reference to the dwarf planet named for her. - Submitted by: Karen Smith
