Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> James Blunt

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!).

I saw an angel, of that I'm sure.
The Story: I heard "up on the shore". Then he sings, "She smiled at me on the subway." I'm like, "Huh? How can they be 2 places at once?" My cousin happily corrected me. - Submitted by: Stephaniejf

The Story: It was when this song came out and I really enjoyed it. One day me and my brother we were singing along to this song when it came up on the TV, and I noticed that he was singing it wrong. We laughed our asses off at it! - Submitted by: Maai
