Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lizzo

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!).

Lizzo's, "Truth Hurts"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100% dead, bitch


Fresh photos with the ball lightning
The Real Lyrics:
I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100% that bitch


Fresh photos with the bomb lighting
The Story: The real lyrics make way more sense but I'm still disappointed Lizzo wasn't making a surreal joke. I lol'd when I first heard this one in the car. Here I thought she was playing with my expectations of where she was going with that DNA test and letting me know she was a cold bitch at the same time.

I was less sure about the ball lightning or if it was ball lighting, but neither made sense, so I thought, ball lightning IS pretty cool... - Submitted by: Laura
