Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Patti Page

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!).

Patti Page's, "Allegheny Moon"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Alligator Moon, I need your light.
The Real Lyrics:
Allegheny Moon, I need your light.
The Story: When I first heard this, I envisioned it being sung in a Southeastern US swamp area, because of the presumed alligator reference. Later I learned that Allegheny is a river in Pennsylvania, so the song's setting is probably far away from any alligators. - Submitted by: Carmen Stanley
Patti Page's, "Cross Over the Bridge"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Leave your pickled pants behind you.
The Real Lyrics:
Leave your fickle past behind you.
The Story: This is how I interpreted the lyrics when I first heard the song as a kid. - Submitted by: John Barry
Patti Page's, "Cross Over the Bridge"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Leave your sniggle grass behind you.
The Real Lyrics:
Leave your fickle past behind you.
The Story: I was very young when this song came out and of course didn't know the word 'fickle', nor did I know what 'sniggle grass' meant either, but that's what I heard! I went around singing it that way. - Submitted by: Dick Lancaster
