Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Henry Mancini

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:
We're after the same rame hozend.
The Real Lyrics:
We're after the same rainbow's end.
The Story: When I was a kid and found many song lyrics hard to understand, I thought the words to this song were refreshingly clear, for the most part. But even herein, two phrases had me baffled. They sounded like 'rame hozend' and 'Huckleberry friend'. I listened over and over to see if possibly I was missing something. But back then I persistently failed to make out anything different. I finally decided those must be the correct lyrics, and that 'rame hozend' and 'Huckleberry friend' were two real things that I had not yet learned about at the time. After growing up, I found it easy to understand 'rainbow's end'. But 'Huckleberry friend' turns out to be the real lyrics, even though what a Huckleberry friend might be remains every bit as much an enigma to me as 'rame hozend' ever was. - Submitted by: Jessica Davis
