Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ramones

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!).

Ramones', "Blitzkrieg Bop"
The Misheard Lyrics:
They're bombing on the front lines
We're going through a tight one
I think I hit a land mine.
The Real Lyrics:
They're forming in a straight line
They're going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds.
The Story: I thought the whole song was about Germany's Blitzkrieg assault-style in WWII and the horrors of war. The 'actual' lyrics are seem more about a Friday night going out with your friends partying. - Submitted by: Sintient
Ramones', "Blitzkrieg Bop"
The Misheard Lyrics:
forming in a straight line
goin' through a tight wind
Jews are losing their minds
Blitzkrieg Bop…
The Real Lyrics:
They're forming in a straight line
They're goin through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
Blitzkrieg Bop
The Story: I sincerely thought those were the lyrics and every time I heard it I’d say “Of course they’re losing their minds, they’re in a Blitzkrieg. Never mind a blitzkrieg bop.” I thought “Jews” replaced “Kids” for almost 25 years. And I’m not even sure how I found out the real words. - Submitted by: Katey Kat
Ramones', "I Believe in Miracles"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh I believe in Marco!
The Real Lyrics:
Oh I believe in miracles.
The Story: I thought that song was about Marco Polo, so it makes me think of swimming in a pool. - Submitted by: Erik
Ramones', "I Wanna Be Sedated"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna piece of this.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna be sedated.
The Story: I was corrected by a co-worker when I was singing to it in my car, when he gaspes, and then started singing along LOUDER with the right words. An embarassing moment. - Submitted by: []F>
