Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> L7

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!).

L7's, "Diet Pill"
The Misheard Lyrics:
'Cuz we're just in the bed
Soilin' the sheets with red.
The Real Lyrics:
'Cuz Victor's in the bed
Sewn to the sheets with thread.
The Story: I just figured when she said 'the frying pan is red' two lines later, the first line said red too. Guess I was wrong. - Submitted by: Mashi
L7's, "The Bomb"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Tit! Tit! Tit! Tit!
The Real Lyrics:
Tick, tick, tick, tick.
The Story: I was listening to my L7 cd when this song came on, and i was like, 'what the hell are they talking about!?' So I looked at the little lyric sheet thats in the cd case, and found out what they were really saying, which made a lot more sense, especially considering the song is called 'The Bomb'. - Submitted by: kj
