Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kelly Clarkson

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!).

Kelly Clarkson's, "Beautiful Disaster"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Attractively weird
The Real Lyrics:
A tragedy with...
The Story: This is my song for a really ridiculously good looking guy (with great skin) who would not commit to me - hence the disaster. I thought he was attractively weird but just like the real lyrics - he was just a tragedy, I really want him to stick it though. - Submitted by: Catherine Lees
Kelly Clarkson's, "Beautiful Disaster"
The Misheard Lyrics:
His magic in me
The Real Lyrics:
He's magic and myth.
The Story: I still hear her saying 'his magic in me'! And sometimes I hear 'he's 'Medical Me'. It's like that's the dude's name or something. I don't know, it's just funny. - Submitted by: diana
Kelly Clarkson's, "Because Of You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And if I die in the middle of the night
Who's gonna save me?
The Real Lyrics:
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing.
The Story: Kelly isn't really pronouncing the words very well in this song. (Either that or I have the wrong lyrics.) I thought she was saying a swear word when she wasn't. This was not only misheard by me, but also by my friend, who now thinks Kelly has some major abandoment issues if she thinks she's going to die if no one's there. [Ed's note: The 'damn' lyrics are correct. And it's very likely Ms. Clarkson does not have abandonment issues.] - Submitted by: Isabel

The Real Lyrics:

The Story: I realized it when I look on the net for lyrics. (By good luck, nobody knows for that.) But I can't explain how stupid I felt at that moment. Before that, I was asking myself often: 'So Kelly can improvise on saxophone beside singing great?' - Submitted by: Aca
