Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Hot Chocolate

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 Real Lyrics:
Where you from, you sexy thing?
The Story: I was about 14 years old, dancing around in my mate's living room with my best mate Tomy with two girls, Vicky and Collette, and we were singing along to this song, laughing and being silly as you do at that age, we sang, "wear your bra you sexy thing" to the words and our friend Vicky recorded us on a tape which we replayed to ourselves. To this day, I believed the lyrics was wear a bra you sexy thing, until my missus corrected me!! Mad - Submitted by: Matt

Hot Chocolate's, "You Sexy Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I believe in Malcolm.
The Real Lyrics:
I believe in miracles.
The Story: In 1978 or so, I demonstrated my ignorance of the lyrics by way of a dance move to this song which involved a defiant, raised fist and marching-step through a bar or two; then a 180 degree, twirl-strut boogie through the rest of the song. This happened only once, after a few beers on the front porch, but would later debut on the dance floor of a Texas discoteque and be adopted by dozens (maybe hundreds) of dancers that night who evidently misheard the lyrics as I had. This dance step spread like a bad cold (not a Saturday Night Fever) through a few other clubs in Austin, then died, but the song is immortal - a classic. Meanwhile at Raoul's.... - Submitted by: T. Byrd
Hot Chocolate's, "You Sexy Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I believe in Malcolm
The Real Lyrics:
I believe in miracles
The Story: A friend of mine, 'Mega', overheard me singing the correct lyrics and laughed at me: 'I believe in miracles?' he scorned. He had been singing 'Malcolm' for over ten years. He was convinced I was singing the wrong words. I'm still not sure he believes me - I'll have to point him to your web page! - Submitted by: Harry
Hot Chocolate's, "You Sexy Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I believe in Milco
Wear a bra, you sexy thing.
The Real Lyrics:
I believe in miracles
Where you from, you sexy thing?
The Story: Actually, these lyrics were misheard by a friend. I was just singing the song and he tried to correct me. I nearly bust a gut laughing when he told me his 'correct' version. He'd heard the song like a decade ago and insisted that his was the correct version. His rationale was that since the band was called Hot Chocolate, Milco made sense. Milco being a milk drink. And since a chick going around bra-less is sexy, the song was called You Sexy Thing. - Submitted by: Saad

Hot Chocolate's, "You Sexy Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I believe in milko's
The Real Lyrics:
I believe in miracles
The Story: I was about 18 or so and had fond memories of a small vanilla flavoured chewy lolly (candy) called milko's (you know - filling remover's.) Curiously and amusingly I knew the lyric would not have been milko's (I was a guitarist singer in a band and we played most songs by ear, didnt bother with sheet music, so I always sang milko's (with some amount of glee as I knew it wasn't the right lyric) but I certainly didnt think it was miracles :D .. there was no "r" no matter how hard I listened. Years later a female vocalist in another band told me she used to think it WAS about milko's (she was only about 7 at the time) - Submitted by: Ian Johnson

I believe in milko.
The Real Lyrics:
I believe in miracles.
The Story: I found out what the line should really be when I went to see the film The Full Monty. This song was played in the film and the lyrics I think were spoken, but were anyway more comprehensible. For years I had been puzzled over milko, which used to be a milk product in England. - Submitted by: Sandra McCrea

I believe in miracles

The Story: My son Ethan was in kindergarten when we first him sing it this way. He heard it from a commercial on television. He is in 3rd grade now and we still find it funny. Being so young, we don't feel the need to correct him at this time. From reading the other misheards, I just hope we remember to tell him before he sings it in public. - Submitted by: Shannon

My mom walked in and yelled at us for listening to such filthy music. We were not quite sure why she had such a strong reaction to the lyrics. She nearly threw the record away until we figured out the misunderstanding. - Submitted by: Chez
