Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Latest Entries

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 20 most recent songs that have been 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!).

David Guetta's, "Titanium (ft. Sia)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
But all your bullets are crochet
The Real Lyrics:
But all your bullets ricochet
The Story: Me and my friend were playing music on a game with our vip. I was singing along and said 'but all your bullets ricochet', and she turns to me, and asks, 'Did you say all your bullets are crochet?' and she did not know what crochet was. So I showed her images of crochet and we got a new inside joke. - Submitted by: Echowing

The Misheard Lyrics:
With the Berber shades, it's a lovely view.
The Real Lyrics:
With the birds I'll share this lonely view.
The Story: It has been nearly 20 years (it will be 20 next year) since this song was released as a single and I can't believe it has taken me this long and via a misheard lyrics website to finally find out the actual lyric sung by Anthony Kiedis. For some reason I just assumed that Kiedis was making a comment about some Berber from North Africa was giving him some shade while he was at the beach, or had loaned him some sunglasses specifically from North Africa and because of that the view was much more lovely. - Submitted by: Peter
