Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lynsey Bartilson

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!).

Lynsey Bartilson's, "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Everyone danced with Meryl Streep in the neuro fashioned way.
The Real Lyrics:
Everyone dancin' merrily in the new old fashioned way.
The Story: I bought a CD called "No Way! It's Like So Christmas" (by various artists). I was in another room when I heard these particular lyrics playing. The misheard version was definitely what it sounded like from there. Later when I played it again and waited in the same room to listen, the pronunciation (of the song generally) was not especiallyly clear, but I was able to make out the correct lyrics to most lines, including these. Later my big sister's boyfriend played for me an older version of the song, by Brenda Lee, and that one was a bit easier to understand. - Submitted by: Amber Wayland
