Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ministry

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!).

Ministry's, "Bad Blood"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The eyes that vomit are the ones that are in love
The Real Lyrics:
We ask if vermin are the ones that already learned
The Story: When this video first came out, I watched it on MTV's 120 Minutes and these were the lyrics that they showed in the closed captions for the hearing impaired. I still think it sounds a lot more likely than the so-called official lyrics. - Submitted by: Sigismundo
Ministry's, "Breathe"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The raping of the lamb!
The Real Lyrics:
The raping of the land
The Story: I honestly thought these were the actual lyrics. Of course, such a depiction of barnyard perversions doesn't fit with the mostly environmental message of the song. It still sounds like "lamb" to me, and now whenever I head the line, I can't help but crack up! No sheep were harmed in the posting of these misheard lyrics. - Submitted by: Daniel
Ministry's, "Hero"
The Misheard Lyrics:
French fries! French fries!
The Real Lyrics:
Goodbye! Goodbye!
The Story: I heard this ferocious description of a battle, sung in murky speed metal vocals. At the end of each verse, it sounds just like they were yelling for French fries to the beat. Hmm, wouldn't freedom fries have been better? - Submitted by: Magnus
Ministry's, "Just One Fix"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Adjust my face
The Real Lyrics:
Just one fix
The Story: Just that a friend of mine was convinced that Ministry was saying 'adjust my face' despite all of my attempts to tell him otherwise. - Submitted by: Will
