Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

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!).

Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars', "Uptown Funk!"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Am I baobab that money?
The Real Lyrics:
Am I bad 'bout that money?
The Story: At university I started working on a live brief with the health and beauty company Aduna that is trying to make their product baobab famous. This song came out at around the same time as the project and I thought Bruno mentioned baobab in the song until I found out what the real lyrics were. - Submitted by: Stompgal
