Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Jane's Addiction

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!).

Jane's Addiction's, "Jane Says"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Jane says don't wear Sergio's
The Real Lyrics:
Jane says she's done with Sergio.
The Story: This song came out in the '80's - the decade of, among other things, designer jeans. Naturally, my friend & I assumed Perry Farrell was referring to Sergio Valente jeans! - Submitted by: Anne Marie Tumulty
Jane's Addiction's, "Jane Says"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Jane says, "I'm gonna risk pain and get my money saved"
The Real Lyrics:
I'm going away to Spain when I get my money saved
The Story: A heroin addict feels unbelievable pain when kicking dope. So Jane would risk feeling that pain so she could get her money saved and go to Spain. I was in active addiction when I first heard this song so that could play into what I thought I heard. - Submitted by: Jackie
