Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kings Of Leon

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!).

4 Kicks album at
Kings Of Leon's, "For Kicks"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You with your switch blade posse
I get my dogs from south
You take to the island cockfight for kicks
Who's struttin now!?
The Real Lyrics:
You hit your switch blade pie face
I get my guns from Shaft
Wear flares to the yard like a cockfight for kicks
Sho's struttin na-how!?
The Story: One time, before I knew the lyrics, some guy was requesting this song on the radio, but he didn't know the name or the artist. He sang the chorus on the radio. I wasn't paying attention until the DJ said, 'Oh! that's 'For Kicks' by Kings of Leon,'. I was disappointed, because I didn't get to listen to what the guy was saying. - Submitted by: Ezra
Kings of Leon's, "Sex on Fire"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The Saxophone Fire.
The Real Lyrics:
Your sex is on fire
The Story: I misheard this song as "The Saxophone Fire" as a kid. I thought "What a waste of instruments." - Submitted by: Ciaran McLoughlin
