Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Mary J. Blige

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!).

Mary J. Blige's, "Family Affair"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Soldiers dance for me
The Real Lyrics:
So just dance for me
The Story: I have a friend who is a dj at a club near an Army base. Whenever that line comes up, there's a group of female regulars who yell, 'Soldiers dance for me!' and it's become a tradition. I can easily see how they misheard that; I sure did. - Submitted by: Eve
Mary J. Blige's, "I'm Going Down"
The Misheard Lyrics:
My whole world stops, sundown.
The Real Lyrics:
My whole world's upside down.
The Story: I was in my 4th period class. I was singing at the top of my lungs after my teacher told me to stop. But I didn't like her, so I didn't listen. I blurted out these lyrics, and everybody just stop what they were doing and looked at me crazy. Even people who didn't even know the song looked at me strange. My lyrics really don't make any sense? - Submitted by: Alicia
