Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> New Order

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!).

New Order's, "Bizarre Love Triangle"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I feel a shot right through with a boat of poo.
The Real Lyrics:
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue.
The Story: Actually it sounded even more like "boat of poo" when it was redone by Frente! That was the version where I had decided that was the lyric. My wife could never understand that line and wanted me to find out the real here I am! - Submitted by: Jeff Gerstl
New Order's, "Bizarre Love Triangle"

Howard Hughes
Oh lime with trees.
The Real Lyrics:
All lined with trees.

The future

I would like to play second colaphone
The Real Lyrics:

New Order's, "Your Silent Face"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Rise, and follow Shane.
The Real Lyrics:
The rise and fall of shame
The Story: I knew I was hearing the lyrics wrong, but didn't know the right words. I got a copy of a copy of a copy (etc) of this song from a friend who happened to idolize our mutual friend Shane, so I thought my misheard version was pretty funny. - Submitted by: e
