Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Pat Boone

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!).

Pat Boone's, "Remember You're Mine"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Remember your mind.
The Real Lyrics:
Remember you're mine.
The Story: I heard this playing on a CD, before having seen the list of songs thereon, and heard the title line of this song as "Remember your mind". I thought, is the singer perhaps urging someone not to lose their mind? That didn't fit in much with the lyrics generally, so I started to wonder if I heard things right. When I first read the song listing on the CD case, I noticed this song's title and quickly realized what I'd actually heard! - Submitted by: Karen Smith
Pat Boone's, "Speedy Gonzales"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Speedy guns Alice
The Real Lyrics:
Speedy Gonzales
The Story: I was working as a dj in the early 70's. I got a call from a listener who wanted to hear 'Speedy Guns Alice'. He had to sing a few lines for me before I figured out he meant Pat Boone's 'Speedy Gonzales'. - Submitted by: Mike Dennis
