Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Natasha Bedingfield

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!).

Natasha Bedingfield's, "Drop Me In The Middle"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I think I found the recipe for creativity
Pull out your gut then add some lard.
The Real Lyrics:
I think I found the recipe for creativity
Put all you've got, then add some heart.
The Story: Natasha's set to have either a peculiar recipe book or nostrum judging by this entry, which like all her other songs she has a habit of drawling in an annoying moany fashion. I'm pretty certain there are other ways of dealing with creativity besides eviscerating yourself and smearing your excised contents with lard. Much simpler, effective and less painful ways, I must add. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
Natasha Bedingfield's, "Pocketful Of Sunshine"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got a love and an old dirty salt mine.
The Real Lyrics:
I got a love and I know that it's all mine.
The Story: I sang along my misheard lyrics for a long time before I stopped and thought about how strange they were and looked them up. - Submitted by: Cyndi Watkins

Natasha Bedingfield's, "Strip Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take my pride, fill me up
The Real Lyrics:
Take my pride, build me up
The Story: Apart from being dirty, the incorrect vulgar lyric actually works better with the rest of the song than the real one does. - Submitted by: Jeffrey Kasten
Natasha Bedingfield's, "These Words"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Tried to write a plastic
The Real Lyrics:
Trying to write a classic
The Story: Writing a plastic just doesn't make sense... - Submitted by: Cody Finke

Went to bars with Shelley and Keith

The Story: I first heard this song when I was 10 and I thought she was talking about a couple she knew. I didn't know what shelley and keats were at the time. - Submitted by: Steve
