Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lloyd Banks ft 50 Cent

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!).

Lloyd Banks ft 50 Cent's, "Hands Up"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You know when you party with crooks, you gotta learn to respect the gooks (I said Hands Up!)
The Real Lyrics:
You know when you party with crooks, you gotta learn to respect the jooks (I said Hands Up!)
The Story: I was 18 or 19 that time. I live in Malaysia. English isnt my first language. With that said. Once i heard the song, instead of looking for the lyrics, i actually "googled" gooks instead. because i didnt know what it means. Turns out gook means a foreigner, especially a person of SE Asian descent. A racist one that is lol!... Didnt help the fact that Malaysia is a multicultural country, and not with a shortage of those of chinese decent either!.. Only used it on my friends tho, in a funny way... trying to sound american while saying "damn gooks! good for nothing buggers, Learn to speak english!"... always said that to my chinese friends when they were talking to each other in Mandrin/hakka(basically chinese). All that from a misheard song which never made mention of that particular racist term,only to be heard by a nincompoop who tried to be smart and googled the misheard word and thus, added "gook" in his english vocabulary. - Submitted by: Rifdi
