Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Queen

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!).

As soon as I heard it, I thought I had misheard him, then the next line 'She used to be a woman with a hotdog stand' confirmed my suspicions for me. I thought it was kind of funny, but looked up the lyrics, and no, it's 'a stick' in his hand. I think that my way actually makes more sense. - Submitted by: Sara Mercury

Beelzebub has a devil put aside
The Story: This one - I'm not making this up - was a question in a Mensa-produced quiz book. The question was 'Can you name the song with the line...?' and there it was in black and white. I mean, sure the song is pretty weird overall; and you could believe that that was the original lyric if you hadn't listened to it too closely. But surely Mensa (the association of the world's smartest people) would be able to check that before it went into a quiz book. Kind of makes you wonder... - Submitted by: Haz-Man

Hit me where the wind blows.
The Real Lyrics:
Any way the wind blows
The Story: My dad would listen to Queen over and over and over again when I was younger. One day, after listening to it for the upteenth time, I thought the song was about a guy who had just given up...who was caught. So I heard the song like "little high, little low, hit me where the wind blows...doesn't realy matter to me.." I, in my mind, was all, "He's such a depressed, sorry shell of a git, that it doesn't matter to him weather or not he gets b**** slapped!" I am of course a fan of Queen now. ;} - Submitted by: Robin

Mama just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled the trigger, now he's dead.
The Real Lyrics:
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger,now he's dead.
The Story: When I heard this song when I was little I had no clue what it was about. In time I began to understand parts of it. I liked the song since it started out slow and then changed so much by the end that it sounded like a whole new song. Anyway, the way I heard the part was that the guy's mother had killed somebody. So it showed how messed-up his life was. I thought he was so messed-up and depressed that he was going to kill himself after leaving and going far away. I figured the song was about how he was telling people what had gone on in his life and also letting his mom and people know what he was about to do. It was a sad song in any case. It wasn't until I wanted to figure out how much of the song I had misheard that I realized that he had killed the man and now was going to get away to avoid punishment (or so I now understand it to be). I never would have guessed the part I had misheard all along was different. - Submitted by: Unknown_face

The Real Lyrics:
Gunpowder, gelatine, dynamite with a laser beam
The Story: As a kid I was afraid of being conscripted and killed for no reason when I got older (Vietnam was just ending when this song came out). Since the Vietnam war had no discernible purpose, I thought the military existed to cull youth and control counter-culture (this was the era of anti-youth sentiment when rock music wasn't universally accepted - even banned in many quarters, and still associated with rebellion in the eyes of conservatives). Much of pop music at the time did deal with these topics. So, I thought this line referred to what mornings at boot camp were like! - Submitted by: Jeff
