Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Mr. Big

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!).

Mr. Big's, "Be With You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Waited all my life for hulkaboo.
The Real Lyrics:
Waited on a line of greens and blue.
The Story: Whatever a hulkaboo is, it must be fantastic -- give me one! For years I never knew what they were saying in this line. Even though I discovered the correct lyrics recently, I have the tendency to forget ad regress to my 'hulkaboo habit'. That's what *really good* songs do to you(!) - Submitted by: Monokini
