Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lisa Loeb

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 Loeb's, "Stay"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Someone's lover's only waiting for the other
Who was dying since the day they were born
Well, well
It's thought that I think that I'm throwin'
But I'm thrown.
The Real Lyrics:
Some of us hover while we weep for the other
Who was dying since the day they were born, well
Well this is not that I think that I'm growin'
But I'm grown.
The Story: After 10 years of never really being 100% sure of the lyrics, I finally decided to look them up. It's a good thing that nobody ever caught me singing this wrong. I still don't know if it's 'thrown' or 'grown', as I've seen it both ways on various lyric sites. - Submitted by: Frann
