Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> McCoys

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!).

McCoys', "Hang On Sloopy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hang on SNOOPY
The Real Lyrics:
Hang on Sloopy
The Story: My best friend Chrissy were eating together in a restaurant that played oldies. This song came on and we started singing. I was singing it right and I noticed something didn't sound quite right. The next time the chorus came around, I didn't sing. She was singing 'Hang on Snoopy' just as hard as she could. I died laughing and tried to tell her that it was 'Hang on Sloopy', but she wouldn't listen. Finally, a couple of days later after she had asked about a zillion people about it, she admitted to being wrong! To this day I still kid her about it! - Submitted by: Shanna Newman
