Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Religious Music

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!).

Religious Music's, "Unstoppable God (per LyricsFind)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Here is Susie Brown to enlighten you.
The Real Lyrics:
Fear is losing ground, to our hope in You
The Story: My housemate has a compilation CD given him by his church of published recordings of the songs they sing. He plays it over and over, and this was on one of the cuts. I misheard a few of the other words too, but those little substitutions don't change the meaning, while this was a whole line. I didn't really hear the word "enlighten" but it's the only one that made sense in the context of what I thought I heard, and anything else I'd imagine Susie Brown doing to you would've been too dirty for them to sing in church. He didn't actually know the lyrics, said they project them when they sing in church. I just assumed that when the recording was made -- a live performance, big audience -- the singer would ad lib the name of someone in the audience or on stage that he knew. Found the actual lyrics online courtesy of LyricFind. - Submitted by: Robert Goodman
