Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Pink Floyd

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 Floyd's, "Another Brick In The Wall (Part 1)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Here! Yes Here!...No?.....Get away then! (Heard with angry London accent rather than Scottish as for real lyrics)
The Real Lyrics:
You! Yes You! Stand still, Laddy!
The Story: I heard this with an angry London accent rather than Scottish one as for real lyrics and thought the person yelling was addressing the chopper in the background. To this day, if I imagine a London accent, the song in the Wall album still sounds like this, even though at the concerts Floyd did it was definitely the Scottish version. - Submitted by: Paul Crispin
Pink Floyd's, "Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
No Dukes of Hazard in the classroom
The Real Lyrics:
No dark sarcasms in the classroom
The Story: I knew what the correct lyric was but the guy I was with insisted it was "no Dukes of Hazard in the classroom" but then again he was usually high on something. - Submitted by: john tracy
Pink Floyd's, "Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
School. You d*ckhead!
School. You d*ckhead!
OR School. Do you miss it?
School. Do you miss it?
The Real Lyrics:
Wrong! Do it again!
Wrong! Do it again!
The Story: The cassette version of this album had a few pictures but no lyrics whatsoever. It was all guessing games for a while. Besides, with the line about "need no education" the stuff of "School. Do you miss it?" seemed logical to me. I figured maybe the kids burned the place down. If I went to such a school environment like the child Pink did in the movie maybe I'd like to torch it too! - Submitted by: I Love Mary Jane

Pink Floyd's, "Another Brick In The Wall (Part Two)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Sounds like two things: First, 'if you don't kick your feet,' then 'if you don't eat your meat,' then (repeating) 'if you don't kick your feet' and then 'if you don't eat your meat.' Kids in the background in a pool?
The Real Lyrics:
Wrong! Do it again!
Wrong! Do it again!

You can't have any pudding
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

We don't need no cruise control.
The Real Lyrics:
We don't need no thought control.
The Story: I was walking with a group of friends and we were singing this song. When we came to this part, I blurted out 'we don't need no cruise control'. Everyone looked at me and started laughing and corrected me. Every time we here this song, we think of that. And now I know the real lyrics. - Submitted by: Gerri Iovino

The Misheard Lyrics:
Dogs and cats are in the classroom
The Real Lyrics:
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
The Story: Well, I am a huge Pink Floyd fan. However, my wife is not. In fact, she really hates them. So, I can only really play my Floyd cds when she's not home. One day, she comes in to the apartment, and I have The Wall on. Now, my wife is Finnish, and English isn't her mother tongue. Just as she walks in, 'Another Brick in the Wall II' is playing. And this is when I hear for the first time, the cutest misheard lyrics in the world. By the way, if she knew that I was posting this one on the Internet, I would have my 'Frank and Beans' kicked in. Cheers, and I hope that you get a chuckle out of this one. I did. - Submitted by: Jay

The Misheard Lyrics:
And I don't need no walls around me.
The Real Lyrics:
And I don't need no arms around me.
The Story: OK, I figured this because of the album title "The Wall". I later realized it's a reference to an overprotective mother. - Submitted by: Tear Down The Wall
Pink Floyd's, "Another Brick In The Wall"
The Misheard Lyrics:
All in all, it's just another break in the wall.
The Real Lyrics:
All in all, you're just another brick in the wall.
The Story: Kind of funny, maybe boring to everyone else. But when I saw them live at Los Angeles Sports Arena in 1980 (or was it '81? Gadzooks, how time flies), I was expecting to see a big wall at the beginning of the concert that would slowly be taken down during the course of the show. I thought that when they said 'another break in the wall' would mean that more of the wall was coming down. To my surprise, the wall got bigger and bigger as the show progressed and finally came crashing down in one fell swoop at the end of the show. - Submitted by: Roger Kieth Barrett
Pink Floyd's, "Another Brick In The Wall"
The Misheard Lyrics:
How can you have any pudding if you don't clean your teeth?
The Real Lyrics:
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?
The Story: I commented to a friend of mine, who is a big Pink Floyd fan, that it would make a lot more sense if the children were encouraged to clean their teeth *after* having eat the pudding. He soon corrected me on the lyrics :) - Submitted by: Paul
Pink Floyd's, "Another Brick In The Wall"
The Misheard Lyrics:
No "Dukes of Hazzard" in the classroom.
The Real Lyrics:
No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
The Story: I was driving my 12 year old to the store, when this song came on. He was singing along in the back seat. When he got to the part about the "Dukes of Hazzard", I almost wrecked the car from laughing so hard. The best part is that he later asked who the "Dukes of Hazzard" were. - Submitted by: Steve

a distant chipmunk on the horizon
The Real Lyrics:
There is no pain, you are receding,
a distant ship's smoke on the horizon
The Story: I am a musician in Louisiana, and a big Floyd fan. My son was singing along with a symphonic version of the song and I caught this blooper. I couldn't get it out of my head, and began to sing the line in live performance. I have since heard several bands use this line as it has traveled from band to band with other musicians. I think it's kind of neat that it started with my kid. - Submitted by: Frank Wiley

My hands felt just like two lamoons.

And the wolves ate into his brain
The Real Lyrics:
And the worms ate into his brain
The Story: I was a painter/decorator, working for the first time with a production painter, who to my displeasure was one of those who liked to sing with the radio. Ugh! He sang wolves instead of worms. It's not wolves dude! He said his brother told him that it was wolves. "Haven't you seen the movie?" He didn't know there was a movie!" I told him he must see it, there are plenty of worms, no wolves. - Submitted by: Sharie
Pink Floyd's, "Hey You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Breaking bubbles in the hall
The Real Lyrics:
Breaking bottles in the hall
The Story: I consider myself an expert on all things drugs. I think that almost every song from Pink Floyd is drug related. So, I thought that the lyric was "breaking 'bubbles' in the hall" - meaning bursting bubbles of smack under the skin left there by sub-cutanious injection. That is, until my friend showed me that I am a complete fool. - Submitted by: Bob-o

One of these days I'm going to eat with the little sheep.
The Real Lyrics:

The Story: My brother-in-law is a very big Pink Floyd fan enamoured with The Wall. He also played guitar for a while. We were at dinner table when his version of the lyrics came out in conversation. It seemed so absurd that he would get those lyrics wrong and never picked up on it before. We were all in hysterics - my husband couldn't stop laughing with his 'kid' brother (now 40). Dave had never questioned the lyrics until we went "what???" - Submitted by: Dave's sister-in-law

The Misheard Lyrics:
You can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat!
The Real Lyrics:
How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?
The Story: I was on the phone with my friend, who was making dinner for her kids. She said to them, "You can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat!"
