Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kenny Chesney

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!).

Kenny Chesney's, "Beer in Mexico"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Sit right here, have another bear and letsa go!
The Real Lyrics:
Sit right here, have another beer in Mexico!
The Story: "Letsa go" is one of Mario's quotes. - Submitted by: Darius Whitehead
Kenny Chesney's, "How Forever Feels?"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna know how the river feels.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna know how forever feels.
The Story: The first time I heard this song was while watching the music video. Every time Kenny Chesney sang 'How Forever Feels', he was swimming in the water. So I assumed he was saying 'How the river feels'. About 3 years later, while singing in front of a group, I got called out on it. Finally that song made sense! - Submitted by: Jackson
Kenny Chesney's, "I Wanna Know How Forever Feels"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna know how Loretta feels.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna know how forever feels.
The Story: When my friend bought this CD, his dad looked at the songlist and said, 'Where's the song about Loretta?' We had no idea what he was talking about so we suggested he sing a little. And he sang, 'I wanna know how Loretta feels.' He didn't know who Loretta was and why we should care how she felt, but that was what he thought he heard and how he sang along with the radio. To this day, I still call that song 'Loretta.' - Submitted by: Laura Richards
Kenny Chesney's, "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem"
The Misheard Lyrics:
So babe, let's get packed
Take time simply floss if you got 'em.
The Real Lyrics:
So babe, let's get packed
Tank tops and flip-flops if you got 'em.
The Story: I didn't just make this up. I swear!!! This is what I was singing for about 2 years. One day my hubby was listening and he just cracked up laughing. He said, "Simply floss if you got 'em?" I said "Yeah!" He told me the correct lyric. I still laugh about it every time I hear the song now. - Submitted by: Lori K.
Kenny Chesney's, "Shiftwork"
The Misheard Lyrics:
A big ol' pile of s***...work
The Real Lyrics:
A big ol' pile of shiftwork
The Story: It took me a few times to hear this song the way it was intended. I was having dinner with an aunt and I told her that I thought "shiftwork" was really "s*** work." She replied, "It's all the same to me!" - Submitted by: Joelle
Kenny Chesney's, "Summertime"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Her favorite song on the radio
The Real Lyrics:
Perfect song on the radio
The Story: It's weird; I'd be listening to the radio, and I'd think, 'Well, it's sort of obvious that she would know the song if it's her favorite!' And I looked up the lyrics and I'm like, 'Oh. Oops.' - Submitted by: Mr. Sally

Too bad I peed on the dashboard.

The Misheard Lyrics:
Too bad I peed on the dashboard
The Real Lyrics:
Two bare feet on the dashboard
The Story: My husband and I were watching TV, and a commercial promoting Kenny's new CD was on. I turned to my husband and told him what I had thought he had said. He got a kick out of it, and he thought it sounded like he was saying that too.
Every time the commercial came on we'd sing, "Too bad I peed on the dashboard" - Submitted by: Becky

Two bags of weed on the dashboard.
The Real Lyrics:

The Story: I work in a country radio station, and a guy who works at another radio station in the same building first observed this lyric, and voiced it, ON THE AIR, and now I can not talk out of this song because I hear it the wrong way, and can't stop laughing. - Submitted by: Dan Fletcher

Been gopherin', chaufferin', company chairmen
