Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Jefferson Airplane

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!).

When the turkey's done, turkieeeees lie.
The Real Lyrics:
When the truth is found, to these lies.

Jefferson Airplane's, "Somebody to Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
When the garden flowers
Feed your dead, yes
And your mind, your mind
Is so full of bread
The Real Lyrics:
When the garden flowers
Baby, are dead, yes
And your mind, your mind

The Story: I always thought "full of bread" meant "full of money", meaning obsessed with wealth and material goods. - Submitted by: Rick M.
Jefferson Airplane's, "White Rabbit"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Remember what the Good Book said
'Feed your head
Feed your head'.
The Real Lyrics:
Remember what the dormouse said
'Feed your head
Feed your head!'
The Story: This is actually a misheard lyric from my mother. We were on a road trip about a year and a half ago. 'White rabbit' came on, and we both began to sing along. When we got to the last line, I sang the actually line and she sang her version. She remarked that the original lyrics made so much more sense. For years, she had been wondering what the Bible had to do with the song. - Submitted by: Lindsay Day
