Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Labelle

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!).

Lady Marmalade: The Best of Patti and LaBelle album at
Labelle's, "Lady Marmalade"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Free your Lady Marmalade
The Real Lyrics:
Creole Lady Marmalade
The Story: I've been singing this song ever since I was little, and I always thought it was 'Free Your Lady Marmalade' as in, don't be shy or inhibited, reveal that side to yourself. I didn't realize it was Creole Lady Marmalade until Pink, Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, and Mya re-made it and I saw the lyrics on Mtv's Say What? Karaoke. 20 years worth of singing that song wrong .. tsk tsk. - Submitted by: Lex
