Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Marilyn Manson

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!).

It's the angel with the scabbed wings,
hard drugs,face,what about his nose?

It's the angel with the scabbed wings,

The Story: My 4 year old niece misheard this one. She is a major Marilyn Manson fan. One day she, my sister and I were over at our grandmother's when my sister drew a sketch of Marilyn Manson with a halo and scabbed wings and asked my niece who it was. My niece tells us that it's the angel with the scabbed wings and breaks into song singing 'It's the angel with the scabbed wings, hard drugs, face, what about his nose?' When my sister told me what she had sung, I thought it was pretty cute and even a little funny. After all, she is only 4! - Submitted by: Sandi

Marilyn Manson's, "Beautiful People"
The Misheard Lyrics:
eliminate and spread, it's hard to be clean
The Real Lyrics:
if you live with apes, it's hard to be clean
The Story: Even after reading the lyrics everywhere, I still think it sounds like that, which actually makes more sense with the first part of the song, not to mention the theme of most of his music. If I was performing it, I most likely would use that pun just because it's actually more to the point than the Planet of the Apes one. I even wonder if that was the original lyrics and he changed them on the liners to be more subtle... Not that he was known for that at the time. - Submitted by: Joseph Whitehead

A pill to make you anybody else.
The Story: My band was playing this song, and I started to sing it, and they said, 'Tight song! Who sings it?' I told 'em, but they said, 'No that's not it.' So I went on-line to find the lyrics, and when I saw that it was totally different than sex orientation. lol!!!!! - Submitted by: STG
