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...

Rent (Broadway)'s, "La Vie Boheme"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Libido M
The Real Lyrics:
La Vie Boheme
The Story: I remember buying the RENT CD the year the musical came out. A couple summers ago I had gone to camp and a couple of my friends discussed the musical and sang full heartedly a song that I thought was called Libido M. When I bought the CD looked everywhere for a sone called Libido M but could not find it. I then looked at the lyrics. For some reason the part I remembered most were the ones about "Dorothy and Toto went over the rainbow to blow up Aunty Em" I looked for those lyrics and found that they fell under the song La Vie Boheme - Submitted by: Emma Elson
The Beatles', "Act Naturally"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The movie's gonna make me a big star,
Like Ben Gazzara, you can never tell...
The Real Lyrics:
The movie's gonna make me a big star.
Might win an Oscar, you can never tell...
The Story: All of a sudden, one day I heard it right and thought, "Wha?!!!" - Submitted by: Keith
