Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Roland

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!).

Roland's, "Interpol"
The Misheard Lyrics:
But they caught him in his skivvies in a public place
That is what we had feared.
The Real Lyrics:
But they caught him with his case in a public place
That is what we had feared.
The Story: All this time I thought this was about a guy named Roland who seemed like a very good guy, but he is a bit perverted. So that is why I thought this was all about someone who doesn't like to wear much clothes in public. When I even met a friend online who was into Interpol I introduced myself as Roland saying 'I know this is what you had feared, but they caught me in my skivvies in a public place, could you please spring me out?' Needless to say, he busts out laughing. - Submitted by: The Infamous CJ!
