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...

Kim Carnes', "Bette Davis Eyes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She's got better day visage.
The Real Lyrics:
She's got Bette Davis eyes.
The Story: I thought for years she sung better day visage. She keeps her skin clean. - Submitted by: djp
Hozier's, "Take Me to Church"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathly stare
Good God, let me give you my life
The Real Lyrics:
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your light
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
The Story: Deathless death is really hard to pronounce without lisping. And since I hear the first line as "My lover's not human" as well, her having a dead-eyed stare isn't beyond imagination. - Submitted by: vorpal_hamster
