Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Rednex

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!).

Rednex's, "Cotton Eye Joe"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Cut and ride show
The Real Lyrics:
Cotton Eye Joe
The Story: I was about 7 and I was at my aunt's. With my cousins, we made a 'show'. We heard this song and sang. We didn't speak any English, so we all sang something about a show, because this was our show. Later, I wondered why they made a song about a show where they're cut whatever and ride. Then, at 15, I saw the video with the title. - Submitted by: Nadine
