Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lorde

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!).

Lorde's, "Green Light"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Did it frighten you, how we kissed when we danced on the night of Thor?
On the night of Thor!
The Real Lyrics:
Did it frighten you, how we kissed when we danced on the light-up floor?
On the light-up floor!
The Story: I was like "night of Thor - that is so cool! But what does it mean? Did they kiss on a Thursday night? Did they kiss during a thunderstorm? What's going on here???" I was sad to learn the real lyric is less cool, even if it makes more sense. - Submitted by: Clair R.
