Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Red Hot Chili Peppers

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!).

Red Hot Chili Peppers', "Aeroplane"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I like birds depspite the pain
And music is my aeroplane.
The Real Lyrics:
I like pleasure spiked with pain
And music is my aeroplane.
The Story: One day I had 'Aeroplane' on my cd player with my little brother, David, in the room. As the song is very catchy we were singing it all throughout the rest of the day. I stopped singing it briefly to get my shoes out of my cupboard and he carried on singing it happily with those wrong words. He thought the song was about birds and how they were nice to watch but that he didn't like it when they do the toilet on your head. (Strange boy) - Submitted by: Rachel
Red Hot Chili Peppers', "Around the World"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Bona fide ride, step aside my Johnson.
The Real Lyrics:
Bona fide ride, step aside Mike Johnson
The Story: The true story behind this lyric is actually a good one in and of itself. I personally know a man by the name of Mike Johnson that used to be the road manager for RHCP. They were doing a show in Wisconsin and had a backup bassist playing because Flea had to tend to a personal matter. They had played a few shows with this bassist and done with "sock on the cock" costume for them all, but the backup bassist was unaware that they used a new sock for every show to prevent it stretching out and falling off. Unfortunately for this bassist, the sock did fall off - unfortunately for the band was being watched closely by local police that weren't pleased with their music and once the sock fell off they had perfect reason to shut down the show and arrest the band for indecent exposure to minors. As soon as they finished (no pun intended) the band ran off stage and Mike Johnson was right there trying to usher them into the bus - but they had a different plan and told him to step aside "Step aside Mike Johnson" and meet them out of town the next day. The band attempted to escape through the "Woods of Wisconsin" and eventually were picked up by a fan on the side of the road whom gave them a place to sleep. The next morning the band got in contact with Mike and met him just out of town to avoid the police. True story, and makes much more sense than "Step aside my Johnson". - Submitted by: Eric Steinhouser

Red Hot Chili Peppers', "Californication"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Circus stars from China
Trying to steal your arms in nation,
Little girls from Sweden
Dream of silver screen floatations,
If you want these kind of dreams, it's caliphonication.
It's the edge of the world
In all the west of civilization
The sun may rise in the east
At least it's settled in a fine location...
Hate is on a mirror while
You break the spell of aging
To love this skin is discharge,
And this is while your waiting.
First born in the cold,
Hot coals are formed....
Marry the guy who would vary the world,
I'd be my very own constellation,
A teenage broad with a baby inside
Getting high on inflammation....
Homies raised I love the phrase
Control the population
Destruction leads to a baron flood,
But it always leads to creation
An earthquake starts to a girl's guitar
It's just another good vibration,
And idol waves couldn't save the world
From californication.
Slitting my wrist
There is no death,
And this is what your craving.
The Real Lyrics:
Psychic spies from China
Try to steal your mind's elation
Little girls from Sweden
Dream of silver screen quotations
It's the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or is that war you're waging
First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population
Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldn't save the world
From Californication
Sicker than the rest
There is no test
But this is what you're craving
The Story: Sometimes it is hard for me to understand what some singers are saying in their songs. All singers have unique sounds, but sometimes their clarity is not good. - Submitted by: ANONYMOUS

The Misheard Lyrics:
They're sayin', 'Tess, you gotta kill the queen and then you've made it.'

I eventually came to the conclusion that they were saying "funk is just a part of us" because, well, they played funky music. I literally just found out they correct lyrics 5 minutes ago after seeing the name of the band's fan club on a web site. - Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe

or
With the burning shared, it's a lonely view.
The Real Lyrics:
With the birds, I'll share this lonely view.
The Story: When I first heard this song I had a big argument with another person: they insisted it was "With the burning shared it's a lonely view" while I insisted it was "It's the Burgess Shale; it's a lonely view". I thought the Burgess Shale lyric was a grim reflection on humanity's looming extinction, hence the Burgess Shale and fossils. They thought it was a love song about "sharing the pain" with someone else. As you can imagine, we were both disappointed when we settled the bet by buying the CD. - Submitted by: Aidan Whitmore

The blood we share is for only you
The Real Lyrics:
With birds we share this lonely view
The Story: My husband just looked at me at first and then after shaking his head for a few minutes he asked, 'Is it that you think the Chili Peppers are into Paganism or something that they would write lyrics like that, or do you realize that you are completely wrong?'

The Story: I thought this song was about a neigbor's dispute. I thought a neighbor (Bubba) built a shed that obstructed his neighbor's view out of his window. I was mentioning this in class one day to my students, and they told me what the song really said. They got a good laugh out of it. - Submitted by: Lisa
Red Hot Chili Peppers', "Scar Tissue"
The Misheard Lyrics:
With blood to shed, it's a lonely view.
The Real Lyrics:
With the birds I'll share this lonely view.
The Story: I had always assumed that the singer had gotten into a bar fight (with sarcastic Mr Know-It-All) over the girl (the young Kentucky girl with a scarlet drawl) and he was shedding blood from a cut or something that he got. It seemed to make sense, since usually one bleeds before he gets a 'scar tissue'. So I assumed I was right---until I saw the right lyrics on the CD liners (which don't make any more sense). - Submitted by: jo

The Story: I thought the lyrics were the first version I wrote, but my friend and mom thought it was the second version I wrote because they said it made more sense. So when I finally checked the lyrics and found out I was closer, I rubbed it in their faces because we had made it into a big debate. It was really funny! - Submitted by: Peanut

The Real Lyrics:
With the birds I'll share this lonely view.
The Story: My boyfriend kept singing it this way every time it came on the radio. He was very convinced these were the right words.

The Story: Well I was driving down the road with some of my friends including my crush, the hottest boy in school! Anyway the song came on and to impress him I started singing this song at the top of my lungs (its his favorite band). Well needless to say I got the lyrics wrong which really offended him. I was completely mortified as he started telling me not to disrespect the band and he has ignored me ever since. To top it all off he spread the news around school and ever since I've been known as the 'lyric loser'. - Submitted by: debbie

The Real Lyrics:
With the birds, I'll share this lonely view.
The Story: My wife an I first heard this on our honeymoon. It was playing constantly on the radio and for the life of us we couldn't firgure out what they heck he was saying.
