Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> N'Sync

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!).


*NSYNC album at Amazon.com
N'Sync's, "Bye Bye Bye"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Five by five
The Real Lyrics:
Bye bye bye
The Story: I had never actually listened to the song, but my sister and I were trying to figure out where Faith (on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) had gotten the phrase Five by Five and a pop culture reference made sense (it's actually an old radio terminology) - Submitted by: Karina Wright
N'Sync's, "Bye Bye Bye"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna see you wash that door.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna see you out that door.
The Story: When I helped my sister and her daughters move back home, I got my oldest niece listening to NSYNC. When we got back, we were singing 'Bye, Bye, Bye'. I heard something interesting. Apparently, my niece thought they wanted their house cleaned. - Submitted by: Roberta Younger
N'sync's, "Just Got Paid"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just got laid, Friday night
The Real Lyrics:
Just got paid, Friday night
The Story: When I first heard this song, I didn't know the title, so it was an honest mistake. Then my friend made me try out for the school's talent show audition, and she had the nsnc cd so I sang this...with the wrong lyrics...in front of all my teachers. If you think about it, for most of the lines, just got laid does make sense, makes more sense then just got paid. - Submitted by: Jenna Kendrick
N'sync's, "Just Got Paid"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just got laid
The Real Lyrics:
Just got paid
The Story: I was sitting in my room with my friend Kelly and we were listening to N'sync and the song came on and then she was like what do they sing and then I told her the line and she was like oh i thought it said just got laid. - Submitted by: Palesa
N'sync's, "This I Promise You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
'Til the day my life is screwed
This I promise you
The Real Lyrics:
'Til the day my life is through
This I promise you
The Story: My best friend and I were singing it at the top of our voices when I stopped her and said, 'Did you just sing, 'Til the day my life is screwed?''. 'No!' 'Well it bloody well sounded like it!' And thus the misheard lyric. =) - Submitted by: Platnum Crewzer
