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...

ABC's, "Poison Arrow"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Chew that poison(ed) apple
The Real Lyrics:
Shoot that poison arrow
The Story: They played this song a lot at "New Wave Night" at The Bar in Champaign, IL (early 1980s) and I did not get the correct lyrics and then liked mine better anyway. - Submitted by: Josh Telser
Flo Rida (ft. Kesha)'s, "Right Round"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I look at Makati, you're out of control
The Real Lyrics:
I look at my Cartier, out of control
The Story: Makati City is a suburb in Manila, Philippines. And yet I still have no clue what a Cartier is (presumably Flo Rida is not referring to the 16th-century explorer Jacques Cartier). - Submitted by: AdmiralMercurial
