Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam

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!).

Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam's, "Lost In Emotion"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Lost in motion
Kay say rock, kay say rock
The Real Lyrics:
Lost in emotion
Que sera, que sera.
The Story: I've been hearing this song ever since I was a little kid, and it was only a few years ago that I found out that the title was 'Lost in Emotion' and *not* 'Motion'. I always thought it meant getting caught up in dancing to the music. I first realized the the other line was 'Que sera' after getting a little older and learning some Spanish before I got the chance to listen to the song again. I can't believe that I thought it was 'Kay say rock'! Oh well..... - Submitted by: Lady Daydreamer
