Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Huckapoo

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!).

Huckapoo's, "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer
Had a very shabby nose.
The Real Lyrics:
Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose.
The Story: Here's a case of hearing a familiar song sung in a new style by a happy-go-quirky group with some peculiar pronunciation patterns that make it sound like they alter the lyrics at some places. They do in fact change some of the lyrics and add in spoken phrases at places. But this that I've cited must be a real mishearing. It wouldn't fit their overall rendition of this standard to say that Rudolph had a shabby nose, as much as it sounds to me exactly AS IF they said "shiabby" rather than "shiny". It is clear that, if they are treating the song with any irreverence, they're not being THAT irreverent. It's basically a somewhat innovative but serious and likeable rendition of this familiar song. - Submitted by: Amber Wayland
