Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Jay-Z

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!).

Jay-Z's, "99 Problems"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If you're havin' girl problems
I feel bad for you, son
I got 99 bottles, but the b**** ain't done.
The Real Lyrics:
If you're havin' girl problems
I feel bad for you, son
I got 99 problems, but a b**** ain't one.
The Story: I had no idea what the song title was, I had heard it a few times on my computer. I started singing these misheard lyrics in my friends car, when he turns to me and solemnly says, 'You are wrong, dude.' Then he explains what the real lyrics are, and I explain why I thought it was 99 bottles. We laugh hysterically. I sincerely thought that this song was about a guy who was drinking a lot of alcohol at a party with a girl. Now what exactly could it mean by 'the bitch ain't done?' Well it could mean that she is just psychotic and wants to drink herself to death. I could also imagine a fat chick drinking a shitload of beer, and Jay-Z fearing that even with 99 bottles left he would still run out of alcohol. Jay-Z of course empatizes with the listener stating 'I feel bad for ya son.' - Submitted by: Sully
