Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Petey Pablo

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!).

The Story: Being from Southeastern, NC, I laughed my a** off going to half a dozen lyrics sites and seeing those awful lines duplicated on each site. Someone, obviously not from around those parts, really tore those names up. Did they even think to check a map of nc to see if towns by the misheard names even existed? No. I mean, 'Bourgon' and 'Warrenshell', c'mon... They couldn't even be bothered to check on the spelling of Halifax. How did 'Pasqoutank' turn into 'Pass the table' ?? - Submitted by: Blue Badger
