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!).

Tell me what's next alien sex?

The Story: Every time I listened to this song, I thought that the Gold Digger mentioned in the song had some sort of gigantic personal orgy room full of male prostitutes, which she was able to afford with the money she took from all of her previous boyfriends. I'm sort of relieved now that I know the actual lyrics! - Submitted by: A Nanny Mouse

Jesus, what's for dinner?
Jesus walks within him.
The Story: For months, I was singing 'Jesus, what's for dinner?' I even told people that's what he really said, until I paid extra close attention to the lyrics one night. I was so floored. To this day, I still think it would have been hilarious if he was really asking Jesus what was for dinner. - Submitted by: Monika
Now Linda love lace like Linda love lace LaFace
Says she like +Mase+ but she love +Face+
Now Linda love lace like Linda Lovelace love face
Said she like lace, but she love face.
The Story: The misheard lyrics come from various sites that have mistranslated the two lines--which are hard to pick up because of the play on words between "Linda love lace" (i.e., his girlfriend Linda loves lace) and "Linda Lovelace"--a famous porn actress in the 70s. - Submitted by: Mr Dizzy
