Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Hootie & The Blowfish

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!).

Hootie & The Blowfish's, "Let Her Cry"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She says Dad's the one I love the most
And Stipe's not far behind.
The Real Lyrics:
She says Dar's the one I love the most
And Stipe's not far behind.
The Story: She's talking to Darius Rucker, "Dar" (pronounced "Dare").
She's saying that she loves Darius (lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish)
But that Michael Stipe (lead singer of REM) is not far behind.

Hootie & The Blowfish's, "Let Her Cry"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She says Dar's the one I love the most...
The Real Lyrics:
She says Dad's the one I love the most And Stipe's not far behind.
The Story: I always thought it was supposed to be Dar (i.e. Darius), not Dad. It just made more sense to me, and I will continue to sing it that way until I hear Darius Rucker say it's wrong. - Submitted by: Vin
