Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Moby

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!).

Moby's, "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?"
The Misheard Lyrics:
These open doors
The Real Lyrics:
He'll open doors
The Story: Check the live video of Moby in concert. You can read the singer's lips. She is clearly singing "HHHHHHHHHHHHHe'll Open Doors". Meaning: when your heart and soul are sad the Lord will open doors". I am not a religious person, I believe in spirituality and being private, not in organized religion. But just look at the singer, you can tell she is NOT saying "These" but instead you can see (and hear) a very strong "H". - Submitted by: Angie
