Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Pilot

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!).

Pilot's, "It's Magic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Ho, ho, ho, it's my dick.
The Real Lyrics:
Oh, oh, oh, it's magic.
The Story: All through high school, I could not figure out what the real lyrics were. Since I didn't even have the title of the song right (and there was no internet back then), I couldn't look it up, and was too embarrassed to ask anyone. So I kept hearing this slightly obscene version in my head, until my college roommate finally set me straight. I thought he might die laughing. - Submitted by: Bytefield
Pilot's, "It's Magic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, oh, oh it's my d***.
The Real Lyrics:
Oh, oh, oh, it's magic.
The Story: A guy I used to work with told me he was very shocked I was playing the song at work. When I asked why, he then told me what he thought the lyrics were. He was a little red-faced when I gave him the correct lyrics- Freudian slip? - Submitted by: Robin
Pilot's, "Magic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Creaming on my pillow in the morning
The Real Lyrics:
Dreaming on my pillow in the morning
The Story: When I was 6, I sang these mis-lyrics (completely oblivious of the implication I was making), often at school or during dinner. Nobody bothered to correct me. - Submitted by: Grim Jhaixus
Pilot's, "Magic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Drooling on my pillow in the morning
The Real Lyrics:
Dreaming on my pillow in the morning
The Story: I lost bet to my wife. I should have known better. She has 6 years on me and was therefore 13 to my 7 when this song came out. [Ed.'s note: But if you said, "dreaming", you've won and your wife is pulling the wool over your eyes.] - Submitted by: Kurt S.
Pilot's, "Magic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Never believe it, fatso!
The Real Lyrics:
Never believe it like sooo
The Story: I was just a kid. A few fellow classmates I knew would get teased on the playground at recess by being labeled "fatso", "Goodyear blimp", "Rollo the Hippo" and other rude names. - Submitted by: God Is My Co-Pilot
