Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Natalie Imbruglia

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm cold and I'm ashamed, yet I'm naked on the floor.
You're a little late, I'm already done.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm cold and I am shamed, lying naked on the floor.
You're a little late, I'm already torn.
The Story: My friend and I remembered hearing this on the radio as we were growing up. One day we heard it together and couldn't stop laughing because the lyrics we were hearing reminded us of someone. - Submitted by: Samantha
The Misheard Lyrics:
So I guess the fortune teller's right
Should have seen just what was there
And not some horny night
Which crawled beneath my veins.
The Real Lyrics:
So I guess the fortune teller's right
Should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light
Which crawled beneath my veins.
The Story: I was just singing along with this song loud as could be. My husband (then boyfriend) said, 'What?!!! I don't think that's what it should say'. We looked it up and he was right. (*blush*) - Submitted by: Linda Sullivent
Natalie Imbruglia's, "Wrong Impression"

Didn't want to leave you with my last infection.
The Real Lyrics:
Didn't want to leave you with my last confession.
The Story: My husband was really digusted with this song, until I explained to him that she wasn't singing about STDs. - Submitted by: andie
