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!).
Roger Whitaker's, "Durham Town"
I've got an evil donut now.
I've got to leave old Durham town.
The Story: We were singing along when we heard some strange words coming from our daughter. We all stopped singing and had one of those dead moments when only the offender is heard. We finally figured out what she was singing - Submitted by: Bill Niemeier
