Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Michael W. Smith

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!).

My face in this world
The Real Lyrics:
My place in this world
The Story: I had heard the lyrics this way for years before my sister found another reason to laugh at her li'l bro. My mom and sis' actually got a huge kick out of this. I still hear it this way but not with each pass of the chorus. I took it as a metaphor or symbolic expression of 'place'. It feels so right that I sing it the way when alone. - Submitted by: BDS
