Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Phish

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!).

Phish's, "Bouncin' Around the Room"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Naptime ends and once again,
I'm bouncing 'round the room.
The Real Lyrics:
That time and once again,
I'm bouncing 'round the room.
The Story: We AND our roommate were sure that it was "Naptime ends". I was really disappointed to find out the real lyrics. We still like ours better, and think they make more sense! - Submitted by: Julie
Phish's, "Chalk Dust Torture"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Come stumble my mirthbeatin' worker
I'll j*** on your family burger.
The Real Lyrics:
Come stumble my mirth beaten worker
I'm Jesmund, the family berzerker.
The Story: I was with my friend listening to this song for the first time a long time ago. I heard the first line where this line is said and I misheard it. We couldn't stop laughing. Granted we were high at the time, but it was hilarious. We listened to that one like for over thirty minutes straight. Then we just sat with the music blasting playing video games and bobbing our heads the whole time. - Submitted by: Sam Roberts
Phish's, "Golgi Apparatus"

I saw you with a chicken stuck in your head.

I saw you with a ticket stub in your hand.
The Story: I was 5 when I first heard this song. That's literally what I thought the lyrics were. - Submitted by: Mitch
Phish's, "You Enjoy Myself"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Wash your face and drive me to forensics
The Real Lyrics:
Wash uffitzi, drive me to Firenze.
The Story: I was drunk and it was the first time I had sex with this guy I liked from work. He was playing this song and he told me they were saying,"wash my face and drive me to forensics." - Submitted by: Helen Beal
