Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Mister Mister

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!).

Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:

The Story: My wife's name is Carrie Ann, and I always sang this song as I was driving to her house, when were dating whoops! - Submitted by: j
Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Carry a laser down the road that I must travel
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
The Story: My friend told me about how much he loved this song when this song first came out - but had no idea what it was called. He heard the title as "Carry a Laser" and belted out these lyrics as loud as he could, and no one who heard him sing ever know he was singing it wrong! - Submitted by: Tony Dercola
Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Carry a laser down this road that I must travel.
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie elason down this road that I must travel.
The Story: A former roommate of mine thought that these were the lyrics to one of his favourite songs back in the 1980s. It just made sense to a Star-Wars-loving kid that there would be a song advising him to carry a laser. - Submitted by: Dan
Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Curious lays down the road that I must travel.
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie elaison down this road that I must travel.
The Story: I was a little girl when this song came out. Imagine my mother's dismay when I asked her what was a 'curious lay'. - Submitted by: Danielle
Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Give me a laser down the road that I must travel
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie Eleison down the road that I must travel
The Story: My friend and I were taking a road trip and I asked her if we could listen to the laser song. She looked at me like I was out of my mind. So I sang some of it for her and she could not stop laughing. Finally she corrected me...I'm glad someone has after 15 years of thinking it is 'the laser song'! - Submitted by: Sarah Spessard
Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Kyrie lays down on the road that I must travel
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie Eleison down the road that I must travel
The Story: For a long, long, long time (until today, actually) I thought that Kyrie was a girl who layed down on the road so that someone wouldn't step in a mud puddle or a pile of dog poop or something. - Submitted by: Alexandra Phillips
Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Kyrie, the leis are down the road that I must travel.
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie elaison down the road that I must travel.
The Story: This guy told me the song was written in Hawaii. That's why the reference to a flower lei (actually a wreath of flowers worn around the neck.) - Submitted by: paul
Mister Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Tearing your legs off
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie Elaison
The Story: A local Phoenix radio DJ replayed a telephone request from a woman asking for that song about 'tearing your legs off.' He was able to determine she was, in fact, referring to 'Kyrie Elaison' - Submitted by: Jim Clingan
