Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Peter Schilling

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 Schilling's, "100 Stufen (100 Steps)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Kein Augen Lichtenstien
The Real Lyrics:
Kein Augenblick ist je
The Story: I thought Peter was saying 'Kein Augen Lichtenstien' instead of 'Kein Augenblick ist je' which is somewhat translated from German to English as 'no moment is ever'. I also found out that 'Lichtenstien' does not exist as a word in the German vocabulary! [Ed.s note: Lichtenstein is small country surrounded by Germany, Austria and Switzerland. German is there native tongue.] - Submitted by: Alana
Peter Schilling's, "Die Wust Lebt (The Desert Lives)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The computer off.
The Real Lyrics:
Die Computer aus.
The Story: I have this song downloaded at home on Limewire. Even though I have heard this song more than 5 times, I still thought Peter was saying 'the computer off' when he was speaking in German. He was saying 'die computer aus', which I have yet to translate among his other lyrics! I'm also a fan of his English and German music. - Submitted by: Alana
