Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> M

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!).

M's, "Pop Muzik"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Radio, video
Monkey with a suitcase
Together in a Disco!
Forget about the rat race
The Real Lyrics:
Radio, video
Boogie with a suitcase
Go living in a Disco
Forget about the rat race
The Story: The phrase "together in a Disco" also turned up in a book I read, referring to an aborted project by Andy Warhol in the mid-60s. It still sounds like a slogan, doesn't it? :) - Submitted by: Louise
