Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Red Hot Chilli 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 Chilli Peppers', "By The Way"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Corn chop
The Real Lyrics:
Con job
The Story: Being a vegetarian, I often purchase things that are made of meat substitutes, and some of them can be pretty strange. So I was wondering if a corn chop was a vegetarian alternative for pork chops or lamb chops. - Submitted by: Tara
Red Hot Chilli Peppers', "Scar Tissue"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Homemade brescetti is only for you
The Real Lyrics:
With the birds I'll share this lonley view
The Story: I was at a friends house (she has the c.d) and asked if she could put on a song. Because I didnt know the name of the song, and thinking that brescetti was a type of spagetti dish, I confidently asked for her to put on the spagetti song. It took her a while to realise what I meant, but when she finally understood, she laughed for 10 minutes straight. It is now a joke between us and whenever we hear the song together we sing my version. - Submitted by: Nina Milaina
