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!).

Billy Joel's, "New York State Of Mind"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't care in vagina town or on Riverside.
The Real Lyrics:
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside.
The Story: I heard this song playing and distinctly thought I heard "vagina town", but quickly realized it must be a reference to Chinatown. Still I couldn't understand the entire line. So I checked a lyrics site and found the correct lyrics. - Submitted by: Chelsea Turtle
Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars', "Uptown Funk"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Fill my cup, put some nigga in it
The Real Lyrics:
Fill my cup, put some liquor in it
The Story: Can you imagine what I was thinking when I misheard the lyrics at first? Fortunately it is just liquor... - Submitted by: Karin
