Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Rich Mullins

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!).

Rich Mullins', "Creed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He ascended into Heaven, on the third day, He rose again
He ascended into Heaven, where He sits at God's mighty right hand.
The Real Lyrics:
He descended into Hell and on the third day, rose again
He ascended into Heaven where He sits at God's mighty right hand.
The Story: This is funny just because it's one of the fundamental creeds of the Christian faith. We used to say the Apostle's Creed every Sunday in the old church I used to go to. Don't ask me WHY I mishear that...every time I hear the song that's what my ears want to pick up. I remember the first time I heard Rich Mullins' recording, noticing that it was odd how it talked about Christ ascending into Heaven twice...hmm, I don't think that's what the Creed says! Third Day's version of the song comes out just's just Rich...haha...we miss him... - Submitted by: Snee
