Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ol' Dirty Bastard

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!).

Ol' Dirty Bastard's, "Ghetto Superstar (That Is What You Are)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Ghetto super
That is what you are
Comin' from the far
We can form the stars
Come away with me
To another place
Where we can corner with each other, wawa!

We can rely on each other, uh-huh From one corner, to another, uh-huh.
The Story: I had to sing it with a guy I liked; and we didn't have any lyrics or nothing. I thought I knew it so well. I made him get up there and sing it with me. I was drunk too, so you can just imagine how that went. - Submitted by: sabita
