Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Me

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!).

Me's, "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hark, the Horrid Angels sing,
The Real Lyrics:
Hark, the Herald Angels sing
The Story: One Christmas Eve midnight carol service, my mother had to lean down to make sure she had heard me right as I was enthusiastically belting out at the top of my voice what I was quite sure were the correct words to the Chorus of one of my favorite Christmas carols. My mother was very devoutly religious in a strictly conventional way, & she would have been furious if I had made my mistake deliberately, but as she realized that it was an entirely innocent mistake on my part (age about 4), she was very amused & this became one of her favorite Christmas stories about me. - Submitted by: Ruth Smith
