Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Hole

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!).

Let's prance for life on your ass, for my life!
The Real Lyrics:
Let's dance for life for the rest of my life
The Story: I have a pretty amusing story and it was my friend that misheard this lyric. I have no clue as to how my friend misheard this lyric but she misheard it.

The Misheard Lyrics:
Amish World
The Real Lyrics:
I'm Miss World
The Story: Some friends and I were driving on the freeway, singing to the Hole tape, I must have been singing pretty loud, because they all started laughing. I kept singing, thinking they just thought the words were funny, (so did I). Then they told me the real words, did I feel like a fool. I will never live that one down! - Submitted by: Tara Stone

Hole's, "She Walks Over Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Carrie, Carrie
Please come here.
The Real Lyrics:
Kitty, kitty
Please come here.
The Story: I first heard this song and thought, 'Who the heck is Carrie?' I liked it, because I went to school with a terribly obnoxious girl named Carrie and this song was totally blasting her. Then I found out it was 'kitty.' I liked 'Carrie' better.... - Submitted by: Alex
