Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Movie Scripts

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!).

Movie Scripts', "Gremlins"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I can't stand to shop like this!
The Real Lyrics:
I can't stand a shock like this!
The Story: I used to think Miss Deagle (played by Polly Holliday) was saying "I can't stand to shop like this" until I bought the DVD of Gremlins. I watched the bank scene in which Miss Deagle took the head of a snowman (which by the way was made of ceramic, not snow) into the bank. I turned on the subtitles and I found out that Miss Deagle was actually saying "I can't stand a shock like this." - Submitted by: Isac
Movie Scripts', "The Graduate"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I am not trying to produce you
Would you like me to produce you?
The Real Lyrics:
I am not trying to seduce you
Would you like me to seduce you?
The Story: This is what I thought Anne Bancroft said, which I heard in songs such as "Too Funky" by George Michael and "Macarena" by Los Del Rio. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
