Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Oasis

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!).

Oasis', "Champagne Supernova"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And the campaign's taking over.
The Real Lyrics:
In the champagne supernova
The Story: I was singing this song with a microphone at a party. Everyone started busting out laughing, but I didn't know why. So I kept singing it that way until finally someone told me I was singing it wrong. It was pretty emberassing! - Submitted by: Sarah Jones
Oasis', "Champagne Supernova"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Champagne soup and over
The Real Lyrics:
Champagne supernova
The Story: I always thought the chorus would end with 'Champagne soup and over.... coat!'. I didn't realise I'd got it wrong until I asked someone 'Have you ever had champagne soup?' - Submitted by: Stuart
Oasis', "Champagne Supernova"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannibal.
The Real Lyrics:
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball.

Lidl by Lidl, they sell you eveything you every dreamed of.

Little by little, they give you eveything you every dreamed of.

or
Need a little time to wake up, wanker?
or
Need a little time to wank off, wanker?
The Real Lyrics:
Need a little time to wake up, wake up?
The Story: Morning glory is slang for a male's early morning erection, so this really isn't far fetched. Ever since somebody on the Oasis list posted how he misheard the lyrics, it's impossible for me not to hear one of the incorrect versions when I listen now. - Submitted by: Ellie Dee
Oasis', "My Sister Lover"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Chaifing the lawn
Is something I could never have.
The Real Lyrics:
Faith in the Lord
Is something I can never have.
The Story: With this been called 'My Sister Lover', it fitted in nicely with a college play about an incestual relationship. In the play, there was a group that had to sing this. The teacher was convinced that these were the correct lyrics and taught the class to sing, 'Chaifin the lawn'--until I had to bring in a copy of the 'Stand By Me' single. - Submitted by: wonderbrawl
Oasis', "Shakermaker"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Shikalow with me.
The Real Lyrics:
Shake along with me.
The Story: My little brother who was about seven years old walked up to me while I was listening to this song and asked me what a 'shikalow' was. I asked, 'What? Use it in a sentence. I've never heard of it before.' He answered,'You know.... 'ahhhh, shikalow with me'. I never laughed so hard in my life. He had been wondering what a 'shikalow' was for about a year before he had the nerve to ask me. He even looked it up in the dictionary! - Submitted by: Dale
Oasis', "Some Might Say"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The sink is full of dishes
cuz she's got many issues on the brain
The Real Lyrics:
The sink is full of fishes
'cause she's got dirty dishes on the brain
The Story: My best friend and I were driving around one day just listening to music (something we do a lot). We both loved this whole album. We were singing along trying to figure out what it was this part was saying. And we thought we'd finally figured it out. We got home and checked the lyrics and were more confused by the actual lyrics than what we had figured out! - Submitted by: RikkrP

I'm tired of talking out my bum

The Story: I was eating my supper and my sixteen year old brother called me downstairs. He told me to listen carefully to the song and when I was done listening I said... 'Oh, my God! He's tired of talking out of his bum!' Chris (My brother) then told me the real lyrics. - Submitted by: Jennifer M

Oasis', "Wonderwall"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Today is gonna be the day
That the gun will throw it back to you.
The Real Lyrics:
Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you.
The Story: When I first heard this song, back in 1995, maybe, I thought that the words were symbolic. I thought that the band was saying: the gun will throw it back to you. I guess I thought that the band was singing about a superman or batman-like magic cannon. I thought they were singing about a magic cannon that had cannonballs that would boomerang on you, and send the cannonballs back in your direction after you fired the cannonballs. - Submitted by: TR
