Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Jack Greene

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!).

He Is My Everything album at
Jack Greene's, "There Goes My Everything"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There goes my only fosation
There goes my everything.
The Real Lyrics:
There goes my only posession
There goes my everything.
The Story: My dad was telling us about the stupidity of a distant relative. It was a female cousin, on my mom's side. My dad saw her in a bar one day, loaded and singing loudly to the song on the jukebox. It was 'There Goes My Everything', a country song by Jack Greene. She sang about a 'fosation', but no one I know even heard of a 'fosation'. I think she just sang the song the way she heard it, even if it made no sense whatsoever. - Submitted by: slb
