Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kenny Loggins

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 Loggins', "Footloose"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You're burning, yearning for some
Somebody to tell you
That Darth Vader's passing you by.
The Real Lyrics:
You're burning, yearning for some
Somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by.
The Story: With three Star Wars movies released by the time "Footloose" came out in 1984, I guess I had Darth Vader on the brain.

I'd sing the misheard lyrics at the top of my voice while my grandparents and aunts watched on laughing.
