Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Mr. 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!).


Broken Wings: Best Of Mister Mister album at Amazon.com
Mr. Mister's, "Broken Wings"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Cuz you're half of the flesh. And blood makes me whole.
The Real Lyrics:
That you're half of the flesh and blood that makes me whole.
The Story: I always thought he was a vampire. - Submitted by: Paul
Mr. Mister's, "Broken Wings"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take these f***ing wings
The Real Lyrics:
Take these broken wings
The Story: Don't know whether he was trying to be funny or he believed genuinely those were the real lyrics but either way, I still think my significant other needs his ears cleaned out. Having said this, though a bit gratuitous, admittedly the cursing would fit in rather well with the singer's vocal straining at this part of the song. Shows some conviction and passion as if he's 'feeling the music'. - Submitted by: Missy Bass
Mr. Mister's, "Broken Wings"
The Misheard Lyrics:
When we hear the voices sing,
You know that Buffalo Bill
Will let us sing
The Real Lyrics:
When we hear the voices sing,
The book of love will open
And let us in
The Story: This came out when I was little, and it was one of those songs I used to sing all the time. Yesterday, I was listening to an 80s station when the song came on, and I finally realized that I'd had the words wrong for years. I always *did* wonder what Buffalo Bill had to do with anything... - Submitted by: Danielle
Mr. Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Carrying a laser down the road that I must travel.
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel.
The Story: I know this has been posted many times, but does anybody remember the movie Short Circuit? This song played in the movie when the robot was traveling down the road. I thought they made this song for the movie since all the robots carried lasers. - Submitted by: Luke Ward
Mr. Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Kerry and her Laser on the road that I must travel
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel.
The Story: Anyone whose name was Kerry and who drove a 'Ford Laser' during the 1980s, this was your song. - Submitted by: Lindsay
Mr. Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Korean lasers down the road that I must travel.
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie elaison down the road that I must travel.
The Story: I actually thought it said that. - Submitted by: General534
Mr. Mister's, "Kyrie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Syrinx or Lesion in the cord, you must not fat-sat. Syrinx or Lesion, normal T1 MRI
The Real Lyrics:
Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel.
The Story: This is how I remember to not use "fat-saturated" sequencing on Lesions or Syrinx when doing spinal imaging. - Submitted by: Mrs. Mister
