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!).

That time of the month
You and me and the trash can knew.
That time at the mall
You and me in the dressing room.
The Story: My friend was dead serious when he told me what he thought were the lyrics. He thought the song was about a period! - Submitted by: Steven
Well, I feel like Poseidon!
What it feels like beside her.
The Story: I thought that was the stupidest lyric so I had to look it up to find out who the stupid artist is. It took me forever to find it, obviously, because "Poseidon" isn't part of the song. Well, now it makes sense. My apologies to Hinder. - Submitted by: Normy Null
Well, it feels like Poseidon.
What it feels like beside her
The Story: I thought maybe it was a promotional song for the movie "Poseidon" or something. I still yell "POSEIDON!!!!" whenever I hear that part. - Submitted by: Mechrobioticon
La be da never want to say goodbye
And I never want to say goodbye.
The Story: OK, so my friend (no it really isn't me) was singing 'la be da'. It started a major conversation and we figured out that none of us really knew the lyrics. The was a 'Let it die' and a 'Lay it down', but 'la be da' was the most ridiculous thing we had ever heard. We finally looked up the lyrics. - Submitted by: Goofy
My cousin's in the room
I wish she was you.
Well, my girl's in the next room
Sometimes, I wish she was you.
The Story: I know of someone who is dating his cousin--and I will probably never hear this song correctly again. - Submitted by: Avanlea
My cousin is the next room
My girl is in the next room
The Story: When I heard this song I was really grossed out because I thought he was in a relationship with his cousin. I hated the song. One day I was in the car with my dad and the song came on, so I said, "This song is totally gross, incest is bad." He was confused so told him what it said and he laughed for like 10 minutes, then told me what it really said. Oops, I really like the song now. - Submitted by: Brittany
