Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ky-Mani Marley

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!).

Ky-Mani Marley's, "Jezebel"
The Misheard Lyrics:
When I saw her with a man - God damn sure wasn't me
When I saw her with a man Gad damn sure wasn't me
The Real Lyrics:
When I saw her with a man that damn sure wasn't me
The Story: The CD has an 'Explicit Lyrics' warning on the cover and there is some strong language (nothing X-rated or violent here) but at the same time with all the Rastafarian references and praises to Jah, I never thought I would hear Ky-Mani Marley take the LORD's name in vain on a CD. Well, I looked it up on the Internet and found out that he DIDN'T. I'm glad of that in light of pretentious 'Christian' bands like Creed and Stryper pulling off the stupid posings that they do, not to mention that their music SUCKS and Ky-Mani Marley's doesn't.. That Jamaican accent of his is pretty thick and I guess it just confused me at first! - Submitted by: Jah Is 4-Evah!
