Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ozzy Osbourne

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!).

Ozzy Osbourne's, "Bark At The Moon"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Bark at your mom
The Real Lyrics:
Bark at the moon
The Story: My cousin and my brother were painting the walls in a house, playing "Bark at the Moon" on the radio, when my cousin suddenly looked up and asked "Are they saying 'bark at your mom'?" Now we sing 'bark at your mom' whenever we see him. - Submitted by: Teela
Ozzy Osbourne's, "Bark At The Moon"
The Misheard Lyrics:
F*** the Pope.
or
F*** the mole.
The Real Lyrics:
Bark at the moon.
The Story: This song is on the soundtrack to a game called GTA: Vice City. The mondegreen is due to the various in-game sound effects layered over the radio (cars revving, gun shots, quips from the main character). Furthermore, Ozzy Osbourne barely says 'at the', and his pronunciation of 'moon' is more like 'moan'. On the antiquated soundtrack, 'Bark At The Moon' quickly became one of my favourites. So I would listen to it at every opportunity, usually singing along with my own version of the lyrics. My brother heard me, and after correcting me, asked me why I didn't think it was odd that it was called 'Bark At The Moon'. But those lyrics weren't included in my version. He then revealed the rest of the lyric to me, which was even funnier. Substituting my mondegreen for the real lyrics, the end result is 'listen in awe and you'll hear him, f*** the Pope'! - Submitted by: Craig Alexander
Ozzy Osbourne's, "Bark At The Moon"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Rockin' the mome.
The Real Lyrics:
Bark at the moon.
The Story: I was driving in the car with my friend singing this song. I started to sing, 'Rockin' the mome'. She started cracking up when I told her what I said. I explained that 'mome' was a shortened version of 'moment.' That was it - she'll never forget that story. - Submitted by: Meliisa williams
Ozzy Osbourne's, "Bark At The Moon"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Shabot Shalom
The Real Lyrics:
Bark at the moon
The Story: When I first heard this song, I thought it was about or written by a Jewish guy because the way that Ozzy says 'Bark at the Moon' sounds so much like 'Shabot Shalom'. If you don't believe me, listen to the song yourself. I'm kinda stupid when it comes to getting song lyrics right. LOL - Submitted by: Crazy-ass white boy

Ozzy Osbourne's, "Dreamer"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Daisy threw the window at the world outside
Wondering will Mother Earth survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her
Try not to die.
The Real Lyrics:
Gazing through the window at the world outside
Wondering will Mother Earth survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her
Time after time.
The Story: My boyfriend and I was sitting in the car when the song came on the radio. He told me he really liked it and that he could really picture this girl Daisy throwing the window at the world and he thought it was such cool lyrics. I just looked at him and asked 'What Daisy?'. Then I told him the right lyrics and ended with 'Time after time' when he said 'No no, try not to die!' I really ruined the song for him...... - Submitted by: Caroline
Ozzy Osbourne's, "Facing Hell"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Is it all the t**s they're waving?
The Real Lyrics:
Is it God that sits there waiting?
The Story: I bought the Down To Earth album right when it came out, so once I got home I listened to it with my (now ex) girlfriend... Facing Hell came on ( I immediately thought, 'great tune!') unfortunately there aren't any lyrics in the booklet so once I thought I knew the lyrics I started to sing, 'Is it all the t**s they're waving!' My ex laughed her a** off! From then on when that song started playing she'd mock me! lol! - Submitted by: Red Paladin

Listerine, it looks good on a corpse.
Listerine, books and pages, dresser drawers.
The Real Lyrics:
Mr. Crowley, won't you ride my white horse?
Mr. Crowley, it's symbolic, of course.
The Story: I was the bass player in an Ozzy tribute band, and the singer, knowing my faux paus on these lyrics, handed me the mic and told me to take it, and I messed it up. I thought the crowd was just laughing because of my disfigurement. - Submitted by: amy
