Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Layo & Bushwacka

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!).

Layo & Bushwacka's, "Love Story"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Raisin bread
Raisin bread
All he was buyin' was just raisin bread
The Real Lyrics:
Rags & old iron
Rags & old iron
All he was buyin' was just rags & old iron
The Story: I had no idea it was a sample from a Nina Simone track called "Rags & Old Iron" until someone played me the original and I yelled "It's the Raisin Bread song!". Of course I got laughed out of the building, (a) for not knowing a staggeringly famous Nina Simone track and (b) for thinking it had something to do with purchasing baked goods. - Submitted by: Cindy
