Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lipps, Inc

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!).

The Story: I was 24 when I actually found out that I had been singing the wrong words to this song. Singing my heart out to it in a club with all my pals snickering at me in the background. I really believed that the song was about Simon Le Bon. Oh, well!! - Submitted by: MArie Gilbert
