Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Index

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.

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!).

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Missy Elliott's, "Work It"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I put my thing down flip it and reverse it.
It's yours if you get the pussy wet.
The Real Lyrics:
I put my thing down flip it and reverse it
Ti esrever dna ti nwod gniht ym tup i.
The Story: This is honestly what I thought I heard. I just thought it was electronically sped up a little in order to not make it so obvious. I'm a 42 year young guy and was recently singing it in my truck when it came on the radio here in Georgia. Alan, my friend in the passenger seat yelled, "What!?" and started laughing. He quickly told me that it was reversed lyrics and that I had it wrong. Once I realized he was right I cracked up! - Submitted by: Johnny B
Stevie Wonder's, "Do I Do"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Though I care not how long my d***,
As long as you will pop me when I lick.
The Real Lyrics:
Oh, I don't care how long it might take
'Cause I know the woman for me, you I'll make
The Story: I kid you not, I honestly thought these were the actual lyrics when I heard the song, and I was completely shocked a very big hit song from 1982 would have such graphic and nasty lyrics. I looked like a deer in headlights when that verse came on. - Submitted by: Albert
