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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
I thought he told you that you were the Olin of Kent.

How come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet?

Tori Amos', "Parasol"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And the seed it warmened with the parasol
The Real Lyrics:
If I'm the seated woman with with a parasol
