Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lou Monte

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!).

Best of the RCA Recordings album at
Lou Monte's, "Dominick The Donkey (The Italian Christmas Donkey)"

Children sing and clap their hands and Dominick starts ta dance
Dey talk Italian to him and he even understands
Gumbaros and gumbaras, da de dance a dallodale
When Zepilagola comes to town and brings oh chu-cha-lil
The Real Lyrics:
Children sing and clap their hands and Dominick starts to dance
They talk Italian to him, and he even understands
Cumpare sing, cumpare su and dance 'a tarantell'
When San'a Nicola' comes to town and brings u ciucciariell’
