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!).

Indexes: [#] [A] [B] [C] [D] [E] [F] [G] [H] [I] [J] [K] [L] [M] [N] [O] [P] [Q] [R] [S] [T] [U] [V] [W] [Y] [Z]

.38 Special's, "Caught Up In You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
So call me dude, little girl.
The Real Lyrics:
So caught up in you, little girl.
The Story: Whenever I heard this song on the radio, I would never know what song it was because I thought they were saying "So call me dude" instead of "So caught up in you". Even though I know it is "So caught up in you", I still hear "So call me dude". No matter how hard I force myself to hear "So caught up in you", I cannot hear it. - Submitted by: Calvin Nielson
