Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Joe Cocker And Jennifer Warnes

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!).

Joe Cocker And Jennifer Warnes', "Up Where We Belong"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The little zup where we belong.
The Real Lyrics:
Love lifts us up where we belong.
The Story: I had just moved to the US and was finding out that British English and American English were two different things, so when I heard 'zup', I just assumed it was a word I was unfamiliar with. From its context, I decided that it was a mountain cabin built and pictured it in my mind. I was very disappointed to find out zup wasn't a word, because it sounded exactly like the sort of place I wanted to live. - Submitted by: Teresa
