Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Paula Abdul Featuring MC Skat Kat

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!).

Paula Abdul Featuring MC Skat Kat's, "Opposites Attract"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Script is slob, and I'm playing it cool, with my homegirl, Paula Abdul.
The Real Lyrics:
Swift and sly and I'm playing it cool, with my homegirl, Paula Abdul.
The Story: I slowed this down, turned up the volume, replayed and replayed, and the best I could get was "script is sla" or "scripting sla" for "Swift and sly". After over a decade of wondering what in the world and being convinced I would never know, it came to me in the car one day out of the clear blue sky, just as clear as a bell, without replaying it or anything.... Go figure! - Submitted by: Keith Phelps
