Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Jessica Simpson

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!).

Jessica Simpson's, "A Little Bit"
The Misheard Lyrics:
At the end of the game
A little bit throws a goalie
The Real Lyrics:
At the end of the day
A little bit goes a long way
The Story: At first I thought this sounded like an Ace of Base song, given the same beat of the song as did their music (such as "The Sign"). I couldn't understand what she meant by this. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
Jessica Simpson's, "A Public Affair"
The Misheard Lyrics:
All the camels come out for Jesus and Mary
Who cares about Joseph, 'cuz he's really not the dad?
The Real Lyrics:
All the cameras come out for a public affair
Who cares? Let's rock, 'cuz the party don't stop.
The Story: I thought it was a Christmas song. - Submitted by: Fashion Clown
Jessica Simpson's, "Angels"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I sit and wait
When an angel
Mansipates himself.
The Real Lyrics:
I sit and wait
Does an angel
Contemplate my fate?
The Story: I was sitting in the car, listening to my radio. We were going in the country were there isn't much coverage, so they put on Jessica Simpson's cover of Robbie Williams' "Angels", and nearly fell of the chair when I heard this lyric. - Submitted by: Laura
Jessica Simpson's, "Take My Breath Away"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Watching every moment when my foolish lover's gay.
The Real Lyrics:
Watching every motion in my foolish lover's game.
The Story: I heard Jessica Simpson sing this on `The Tonight Show with Jay Leno', and I thought the line above sounded like the misheard version. But I was suspicious as to whether I'd heard it correctly or not. So I looked on a lyrics site and found the real lyrics, confirming suspicions that I had misheard that line. - Submitted by: Jessica Childess
Jessica Simpson's, "With You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Nothing but a T-bird on
The Real Lyrics:
Nothing but a tee shirt on
The Story: My boyfriend was singing this song with the correct lyrics. I disagreed with him "with a baby tee in mind". With only a baby tee on, she's dressing too revealing on the bottom half. I kept insisting on my lyrics, thinking, 'No! she can't have just a tee shirt on!' After arguing for a while, my boyfriend and I went to ask his mother who agreed with his correct lyrics. So I argued with her. She explained that it was a large tee shirt, as in pajamas. I still stubbornly persisted on my lyrics. She suggested my boyfriend and I bet on it. Needless to say, I lost the bet when I saw the real lyrics. I owed him dinner! - Submitted by: Kelly
