Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kajagoogoo

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!).

Kajagoogoo's, "Too Shy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You're too shy, too shy
You're too shy to shy
The Real Lyrics:
You're too shy, shy
The Story: I always thought the first line of the chorus was either "You're too shy, too shy" or "You're too shy to shy" (the latter having some deep, hidden meaning) rather than just "You're too shy, shy" until lyric sites started popping up on the internet. - Submitted by: Glenn Iverson
