Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Reba McEntire

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!).

Reba McEntire's, "I'm A Survivor"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And the heart of a spider.
The Real Lyrics:
And the heart of a fighter.
The Story: I asked my mom what 'the heart of a spider' meant, and she gave me the funniest look. So the next time we heard the song I pointed it out to her, whereupon she laughed and told me I was wrong. And kept on laughing. Now every time we hear the song, we always say 'heart of a spider' at least once while it plays. - Submitted by: Stephanie
