Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Monica

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!).

Monica's, "For You I Will"
The Misheard Lyrics:
For you I will fight a bull
The Real Lyrics:
For you I will fight, oh oh oh
The Story: I actually thought the words were ' for you i will follow', but my friend thought they were ' for you i will fight a bull'. we all laughed at her so hard b/c it was so ridiculous. we plan to send her that message in our yearbooks - Submitted by: DESTINY
Monica's, "For You I Will"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I will be the sun in your sky
I won't make you wait for all time.
or
I won't be the sun in your sky
That it really sucks to be the guy.
The Real Lyrics:
I will be the sun in your sky
I will light your way for all time.
The Story: We were singing karaoke the other day. The lyrics showed, 'I will make you wait for all time', so my friend ad-libbed and sang, 'that it really sucks to be the guy'. Based on what I thought the lyrics to be all these years, I assumed they wrongly substituted 'will' for 'won't'. My friend told us what the lyrics really were. - Submitted by: Anthony Chico
Monica's, "Street Symphony"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Visit the streets or me
The job's taking over pain.
The Real Lyrics:
Is it the streets or me?
The drugs taking over me.
The Story: The above misheard lyrics make absolutely no sense in the context of the song (a girl asking her boyfriend to choose between being a drug dealer or leaving the criminal life to be with her). Yet, those wrong lyrics are still reported as correct on many Internet lyric websites, go figure. - Submitted by: m
