Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Juice Newton

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!).

Juice Newton's, "Angel Of The Morning"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just touch my teeth before you leave me.
The Real Lyrics:
Just touch my cheek before you leave me.
The Story: I was in a fast food place with my mom and my little baby niece. When they were playing this song, I got all embarrassed and told my mom just how terrible it was that they'd play a song about french-kissing right out where little kids could hear it. She was really confused. Then I told her what I was hearing, and she almost choked on her food and laughed for a good 5 minutes before telling me what the real lyrics were. - Submitted by: Carolee
Juice Newton's, "Angel of the Morning"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just brush my teeth before you leave me.
The Real Lyrics:
Just touch my cheek before you leave me.
The Story: I was very young when I first heard this song and up until a few years ago I actually thought she was saying brush my teeth. I was like, 'Why can't she brush her own teeth?' It's pretty funny that I was so convinced these were the lyrics. - Submitted by: amber

The Story: I thought it was beautiful idea that someone else would count the sheep you use to go to sleep. - Submitted by: clyde
Juice Newton's, "Queen of Hearts"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And others they know just what I'm going through
It's hard to be a-lover when you're going to Indy for fun.
The Real Lyrics:
And others they know just what I'm going through
And it's-a hard to be a lover when you say you're only in it fun
The Story: I always thought it was about a race car driver who was going to Indy for a race. - Submitted by: Reed McEwen
Juice Newton's, "Queen of Hearts"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take a little flea to lunch
The Real Lyrics:
Playin' with the queen of hearts
The Story: This was actually not my misheard lyric, but was relayed to me by a guy I knew in high school. He told me that, one day, when he was at home and this song came on the radio, his mom told him that she thought it was a silly song because, 'Who would take a little flea to lunch?' He explained to her what the lyrics actually said, at which point she became very embarrassed and probably assumed he'd never tell anyone about it. She was wrong! - Submitted by: Lisa Gillette-Martin
Juice Newton's, "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Known)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And I have never been afraid of museums.
The Real Lyrics:
And I have never been afraid of losin'.
The Story: I've always loved this song, but ever since I realized that 'losin' ' could be mistaken for 'museum', I haven't been able to enjoy it as much as before. - Submitted by: Nick Cornwell
