Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ini Kamoze

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.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

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:
Anyone test will hear the Valley of Sins
The Real Lyrics:
Anyone tests will hear the Fat Lady Sing
The Story: This one is hard to pick up without listening to the track far too much. Basically, I heard it at a party where I wasn't really paying attention to the music and then decided to sing it the next day. I couldn't help it that Ini's accent was so heavy. - Submitted by: The Haz-Man

The Story: I actually thought this song was called 'Leprechaun Dancer', and tried to find it at music stores for ages with no success. It's still a really good song, but my cute image of rock-star leprechauns has just gone down the drain. :( - Submitted by: Skylark
