Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Raspberries

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!).

Raspberries', "Go All The Way"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Please, don't go away.
The Real Lyrics:
Please, go all the way.
The Story: I was way too naive in the '70s. This was one of my favorite songs, but it never occurred to me that the girl described in the song wanted anything more than prolonged cuddling. - Submitted by: Mark Frost
Raspberries', "Go All The Way"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You're alone and screwing me
The Real Lyrics:
Before her love I was cruel and mean
The Story: This is actually not a lyric I misheard but one that I corrected someone else on. A guy was using this on a message board as an example of how teenage boys use songs to convince their girlfriends to sleep with them. My response was: A) those aren't the words, B) if a song can do it, that girl didn't need much convincing to begin with, and C) those lyrics make no sense - if you're alone, how can you be... ? - Submitted by: Kathie

Raspberries', "I Wanna Be with You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I just wanna pee with you
The Real Lyrics:
I just wanna be with you
