Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kid Creole And The Coconuts

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!).

Kid Creole And The Coconuts', "Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
o-no, o-no, onomatopoeia
The Real Lyrics:
I don't, I don't, I don't want to be your (x8)
The Story: I loved this song as a kid, and I had just learned about onomatopoeia at school when it first came out. I have always loved the word onomatopoeia, and now I'm very disappointed to discover that it is not the right lyric :) - Submitted by: jollyjohnson68

The Real Lyrics:
I don't, I don't, I don't want to be your (x8)
The Story: Onomatopoeia means something that sounds like what it is, so i believed it was an ignorant way for Kid Creole to say to the child that it is what it sounds like, which is I'm not your daddy!! The truth is in the words, ha ha I guess I got it wrong again. - Submitted by: Steve Leversedge
