Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Peter Sarstedt

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!).

Peter Sarstedt's, "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?"

Both touched with a burning ambition,
To shake off their lonely bald tags
The Real Lyrics:
Both touched with a burning ambition,
To shake off their lowly-borne tags
The Story: This is an alternative take on my recently submitted entry. Equally valid. - Submitted by: Robert Woodrow
Peter Sarstedt's, "Where Do You Go To, My Lovely?"
The Misheard Lyrics:
So look into my face, my eclair.
The Real Lyrics:
So look into my face, Marie-Claire.
The Story: Well, to a kid that's what it sounded like. He sang the song in that fake French accent so I thought he was singing about French pastries as well. ;) - Submitted by: Lori
