Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Melanie C

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!).

Melanie C's, "Going Down"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I am not a horse
I just want some corn.
The Real Lyrics:
I am not a whore
I've just gone hardcore.
The Story: Melanie C sings through some crackling and muffled effect in this song. So she sounds like the teacher on the Charlie Brown and Snoopy cartoons at the best of times. At first, I thought she was trying to be metaphorical in some way by comparing herself to a horse. But then I started wondering if horses are actually renowned for eating corn---and gradually accepted that what I heard didn't make sense. Still, they're better than the real words, which are a laughably pathetic attempt from a pop star -- noteworthily a Spice Girl -- to 'rock up' her image. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
