Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> King Crimson

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!).

King Crimson's, "Cat Food "
The Misheard Lyrics:
Your mother's always cleaning
Cat poop, cat poop, cat poop again.
The Real Lyrics:
Your mother's quite insane
Cat food, cat food, cat food again.
The Story: I was listening to this song one day, and out of the blue, I started laughing so hard because it sounded like Greg Lake was saying 'Cat Poop' instead of 'Cat Food'. It was one of the most funniest misheard lyrics I've ever heard. - Submitted by: Jennifer
King Crimson's, "Epitaph"
The Misheard Lyrics:
On future, will be my epitaph.
'Cause I crawl, I cracked, and broken path.
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.
'Cause I will tomorrow I'll be crying.
Yes I will tomorrow I'll be crying.
Yes I will tomorrow I'll be crying.
The Real Lyrics:
Confusion will be my epitaph.
As I crawl a cracked and broken path.
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.
But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.
The Story: It was an answer from The Moody Blues' pop hit, "Nights in White Satin", that another progressive rock band, Barclay James Harvest, sampling it in their song, "Poor Man's Moody Blues", but not popular as well. "Nights in White Satin" from The Moody Blues' second studio album, "Days of Future Passed", was released on 10 November 1967, while "Epitaph" from its debut studio album, "In the Court of the Crimson King", was released two years later on 10 October 1969. So, Robert Fripp and friends wrote their song as an answer from "Nights in White Satin" and there are similarity in every choruses on "Nights in White Satin", "Epitaph", and "Poor Man's Moody Blues" (coda on "Nights in White Satin" ended with a little bit of symphony, the poem "Late Lament", and later fade-out gong while coda on the latter like "Epitaph" and "Poor Man's Moody Blues" ended fade-out while the music still playing in upbeat tempo). "Epitaph" was also a sign of the born of progressive rock because it was born in underground territory. About this song: "Epitaph" was featured on the album "In the Court of the Crimson King" that also including their only single charting on Billboard's Pop Chart titled "The Court of the Crimson King" (reaching #80). - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
