Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Prodigy

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!).

Prodigy's, "Firestarter"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm the farmer's daughter
Twisted farmer's daughter.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm the firestarter
Twisted firestarter.
The Story: I saw the video at a friend's house in 5th grade, yet managed to only hear (and see) the middle of the video, missing the title. I was really confused as to why he was the 'farmer's daughter', and also why he was so dang angry about it. A few hours later, it was still bothering me. So I asked my friend what the lyrics were, and we still laugh about my mishearing the words to this day. - Submitted by: valerie
