Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Robbie Williams

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!).

Robbie Williams', "Angels"
The Misheard Lyrics:
'Cos I have been told masturbation lets their wings unfold.
The Real Lyrics:
'Cos I have been told that salvation lets their wings unfold.
The Story: This song misheard by a friend of mine who is the musical director of a holiday park in Devon, so he started deliberately singing it wrong in shows to get laughs. He later started adding other rude lyrics to the song, such as in the first chorus, instead of 'I know that life won't break me', he sang 'I know my wife will take me', and then in the second chorus, instead of 'And through it all she offers me protection, a lot of love and affection', he sang 'And through it all she makes me wear protection and gives me an erection'. - Submitted by: Beth Charlesworth
Robbie Williams', "Angels"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm loving ninjas instead
The Real Lyrics:
I'm loving angels instead
The Story: This isn't actually misheard, Robbie CHANGED the title of the song and replaced the word angels with the word ninjas especially for a recording for the BBC Radio 2 show in December 2009. I was lucky enough to be in the audience of 200 people and what a laugh it was.. - Submitted by: Mark Pearce
Robbie Williams', "Better Man"

The Misheard Lyrics:
I hope I'm home before I'm dry
The Real Lyrics:
I hope I'm old before I die
The Story: This is the version sung by my 10-year-old daughter and I don't want to shatter the illusion by correcting her. Her version is much more cheerful. - Submitted by: Dave Williams

The Misheard Lyrics:
He put an knee in my ****hole
And c*** in my throat.

He put an 'e' in the arsenal
A comb in my 'fro.
The Story: We were watching the video on T.V. and wondering if the snake bit was really suitable for early afternoon. One of us (can't remember who) started singing those lyrics to the chorus - try it, it is very similar the way he sings it! - Submitted by: craig macpherson
