Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Judy Garland

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!).

Judy Garland's, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Baseball friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
The Real Lyrics:
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
The Story: I was shopping in a store when this came on the sound system, not all too loudly for me, as I wasn't particularly close to a speaker at the time. These words seemed to resonate in my head as if they sounded just like "Baseball friends...", etc., even though I already knew the real lyrics! - Submitted by: Mary Ann Brite
Judy Garland's, "Over The Rainbow"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Someday, I'll worship porn stars.
The Real Lyrics:
Someday, I'll wish upon a star.
The Story: I told a friend about how I once misheard this song this way. She scolded me and said she'd never submit any such thing. She said it would be such a naughty thing to attribute to Judy Garland. But I thought about it and realized that it didn't move me so much. After all, if she had worshipped porn stars (and had had no more harmful 'vices' than that), Judy Garland might well have had a good chance of being alive today. [Ed.'s note: I doubt that seriously.] - Submitted by: Tiffany Llewellyn-affit
Judy Garland's, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Somewhere over the rainbow
Weigh a pie.
The Real Lyrics:
Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high.
The Story: My niece Alys was lead singer in a school play. She actually sang the words "weigh a pie", thinking that that was right! - Submitted by: E A Curwen
