Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> R. Kelly

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!).

R. Kelly's, "I Believe I Can Fly"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I believe I can sky
I believe I can torch this guy
I bring it out on every Knight and Daye
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can score
I see me running through the open court
I believe I can sky
I believe I can glide
I believe I can fly
The Real Lyrics:
I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
The Story: When you watch any of Jordan's videos, you'd think if he was still dunking on the Brandon Knights and Austin Daye. The final three lines should be misheard backwards. He can still dunk, just can't take off as far as he did. - Submitted by: Rocky

The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh my God, it's Robert!
The Real Lyrics:
Oh my God, it's a r****r!
The Story: Okay, this is After R. Kelly calls up his house and a man answers the phone. He gets mad, drives home with a speeding ticket, comes home, and his wife tells him that his brother came to the house. After that he says he's sorry, and they do stuff without protection. A few moments later, he gets tired, pulls the sheets back and finds a condom. At first when I heard the song and he said 'a r****r', it sounded like he said 'Robert'. I was thinking, 'LOL, the dude was there the whole time?' - Submitted by: Nate
