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!).

Keyshia Cole's, "Heaven Sent"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Simple, never!
The Real Lyrics:
Sent from Heaven
The Story: Used to sing this song, out loud in the car. One day, my song came on the radio, I had a cold, voice was cracking, so I just listened. To my surprise, it said, "Sent from Heaven". Well, hmmm??? All this time, I've been singing "Simple, never!" I thought the song was about how complicated love is. Ha! - Submitted by: Karen
Fall Out Boy's, "America's Suitehearts"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You could have mount to much and made out with us
I know you heard this song before but bridges hell's
What What What the world befather it me
Will my dreams dreams stop all of the all forest trees
The Real Lyrics:
You could have knocked me out with a feather.
I know you've heard this all before, but we're just Hell's neighbors.
Why, why, why won't the world revolve around me?
In my dreams trees grow all over the streets.
The Story: I heard this song for the first time, and usually I'm really good at making out Fall Out Boy lyrics, but I heard the song this way and have sung it this way out loud. But since I know no Fall Out Boy fans they couldn't correct me. I had the decency to search up the lysics today and found out I have been singing and writing it wrong for 3 months. - Submitted by: Mimi
