Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Martina McBride

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!).

With a broken wing, she carries her beans.

With a broken wing, she carries her dreams.

Martina McBride's, "Blessed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I have big breasts.
The Real Lyrics:
I have been blessed.
The Story: I had heard this song all over the radio for ages, without knowing what it was called or who it was by! I was shocked that they would allow such risque content on country radio! Until one time I was in the car with my two best friends, singing along and they all started laughing! And I thought, 'What?' And later I saw the video- and Martina doesn't have big breats at all! - Submitted by: Lindz

The Story: The album that followed the one this was on was titled 'Evolution' but I always thought that was the album the song was on, so every time people corrected me, I insisted that it was 'evolution' in the lyric because that's where she got the title of the album from. - Submitted by: Aces1820
