Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ne-Yo

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!).

Because Of You album at
Ne-Yo's, "Closer"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Mull of Kintyre
The Real Lyrics:
I just can't stop
The Story: LOL - Submitted by: Matt
Ne-Yo's, "Miss Independent"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She's got some round things
That's why I love her.
The Real Lyrics:
She's got her own thing
That's why I love her
The Story: Considering how the Black Eyed Peas sing about her "Humps", it didn't sound that out of place, not until you understand the full song. It was actually these lyrics that got me thinking of my own parody for this song. But instead of the "round things" meaning women's you-know-whats, I changed it to talk about my dog that has to wear the "Cone of Shame", to use the quote from Pixar's movie "Up!". - Submitted by: Pyth
Ne-Yo's, "Sexy Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm like a volcano and cover her with my n**.
The Real Lyrics:
Like a volcano and cover her with my love.
The Story: Just heard it one night, thought, 'Hmm... maybe he's just naughty or freaky?' It could make sense that way, and would just have to be edited on the radio. - Submitted by: LD
Ne-Yo's, "Sexy Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She makes the hands on the back of my legs stand up.
The Real Lyrics:
She makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
The Story: Oh, so that's why Ne-Yo's always wearing worryingly overly voluminous trousers. He has some strange abnormality. Still, one might consider him lucky to have that. Think of the amount of time he can cut with writing songs and producing albums. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
