Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Heatwave

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!).

Heatwave's, "Always And Forever"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Near and far oceans together.
The Real Lyrics:
Near and far, always together.
The Story: I was going to a new school, and I met this girl in the hallway. We started talking and somehow this song came up. I started singing it, and she did too. We both thought that the singer was saying 'oceans together'!! It was so weird, but I still believe 'til this day that those are the real lyrics. LOL - Submitted by: pimpette
