Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Pink

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!).

Pink's, "Blow Me One Last Kiss"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just like kicking birds...
The Real Lyrics:
Just when it can't get worse, I had a s**t day (No!)
You had a s**t day (No!)
We've had a s**t day (No!)
The Story: from a tinny boom box speaker about 15 feet from ears, low volume. - Submitted by: Pete
Pink's, "Blow Me One Last Kiss"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just when it can't get worse, I had a s**t daddy, you
You had a s**t daddy too
We've had a s**t daddy, woo
The Real Lyrics:
Just when it can't get worse, I had a s**t day (No!)
You had a s**t day (No!)
We've had a s**t day (No!)
The Story: During Spirit Week, my school had a "don't forget the lyrics" event one day and I signed up. This was one of the songs, but the lyrics we had to remember were in the second verse. Meanwhile as the first part of the song plays, the lyrics are projected on the wall, so that's when I discovered I had misheard it. Well, I had always wondered what having a bad paternal figure had to do with anything. Our team didn't win that round anyway. - Submitted by: Macaroni Man
Pink's, "Don't Let Me Get Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Damn bridge knee spares
The Real Lyrics:
Damn Brit-ney Spears
The Story: I only realized this today when my little sis sang them the right way. I always wondered... - Submitted by: Clare
Pink's, "Don't Let Me Get Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't want to be my bangalore
I wanna be somebody else
The Real Lyrics:
Don't want to be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else.
The Story: I was about 12 when this song came out. One morning it came on the radio before school, and my 10 year old brother, who was really interested in WWII just blurted out those lyrics. He then explained how a bangalore is a type of torpedo and why would someone sing a song about wanting to be a torpedo. I told him that Bangalore was also a city in India and it was probably not the real lyrics, but he continued to sing those words for a number of years. Every time I hear the song that's what I think of... - Submitted by: Me again!
Pink's, "Don't Let Me Get Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got my own warts and I'm mean
The Real Lyrics:
I'm my own worst enemy
The Story: At my birthday party we had to sing a song, and of course my friends chose me to sing 'Don't Let Me get me' and I was really confused in those lyrics!! I chose not to sing that line, but running through my head was 'I got my own warts and I'm mean'!!! Sad, huh??!! - Submitted by: Lara Westerhof
Pink's, "F***in' Perfect"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're perfect, (or) f***ing worth it
The Real Lyrics:
Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than f***ing perfect
The Story: I thought it was a pretty mean song until I read the lyrics. - Submitted by: Her
Pink's, "Family Portrait"
The Misheard Lyrics:
In our freddy portrait
We look pretty gappy
We look pretty trauma
Let's go back to dad.
The Real Lyrics:
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Let's go back to that.
The Story: I was listening to the lyrics when suddenly my friend started to chip in with "YMCA'. She was so offputting that I heard the lyrics to Pink's song as, 'In our freddy portrait.' When I sung them to my other friends, they burst out laughing and told me the real ones. - Submitted by: Rox-Elizabeth
Pink's, "Get This Party Started"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Get this body started.
The Real Lyrics:
Get this party started.
The Story: My aunt was discussing with her sister over what the lyrics to the Pink song was; you know, the one where she talks about her Mercedes. She always thought it was 'Get this body started' until I corrected her. - Submitted by: John Joseph A. Gatchalian
Pink's, "Just Give Me a Reason"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Just a second we're not broken in bed.
The Real Lyrics:
Just a second we're not broken, just bent.
The Story: I had repeatedly heard this playing in stores and wondered some about the song, understanding few complete lines except "We may learn to love again". As for the above line, "we're not broken in bed" was then nearest I came to making out the last part of the line. Eventually I got curious enough to google the one phrase of the song I had completely understood, and found out what the real lyrics are. This line stands out among the songs lyrics for my having a tangible but misheard notion of what it says. Now that I know the lyrics, "broken in bed" comes across as funny relative to the real lyrics of the line. - Submitted by: Karen Smith
Pink's, "Just Like Fire"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If I could light the world up for just one day
The Real Lyrics:
f*cking at the world after just one day
The Story: It's Alice Through the Looking Glass's theme song. I thought those lyrics were harsh for a children's movie. - Submitted by: IƱaki
Pink's, "Most Girls"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Most guys want a man with a big d***.
The Real Lyrics:
Most girls want a man with the mean green.
The Story: I screamed (the offending lyric) at the top of my lungs when the song came up at a party! - Submitted by: What
Pink's, "Sober"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll save a pie
The Real Lyrics:
I'm safe up high
The Story: No idea. I always heard it like this, 'till I finally went and looked for the real lyrics. I was all like: No way! - Submitted by: Kira
Pink's, "Trouble"
The Misheard Lyrics:
No onions to send me to outer space.
or
No oh-yeahs to send me inter-outer space.
The Real Lyrics:
No orbits to send me into outer space.
The Story: Ever since going down her supposed 'rock' route, simultaneously Pink has lost the only morsel of clarity she had remaining in her voice. So now it's just a gravelly, incoherent mess most of the time that makes being able to hear what she's saying akin to a Rubik's cube. This is just one of the multitude of results from attempting to decipher that noise that comes out of her mouth. [Ed.'s note: "That noise" has also not sold as many records as her last album. So, Devil, take consolation in that.] - Submitted by: Devil Jones
Pink's, "U + Ur Hand"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm not here for your entertainment
You don't really want to masturbate tonight.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm not here for your entertainment
You don't really want to mess with me tonight.
The Story: I heard the part about "you and your hand tonight", then "you don't want to mess with me tonight'. (Put 2 and 2 together.) - Submitted by: JG
