Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sabrina Claudio

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!).

Sabrina Claudio's, "Don't Shake It Off"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't play with me, don't be dishonest
I'm so not understanding your logic
I'm back and I'm better
If "ya wanna back the Devil"
The Real Lyrics:
Don't play with me, don't be dishonest
I'm so not understanding your logic
I'm back and I'm better
If "you want me bad as ever"
The Story: Was beginning to listening to Sabrina Claudio's music a couple weeks ago and was watching her videos as well but on the "Better Version" video, her eyes fluctuate in color between being lit up "red" to being lit up "bright white" to add effect to the video. I believe that subconsciously, my brain interpreted the lyrics to "Don't Shake It Off" as that she was actually saying "if you wanna back the Devil" because I seen her eyes light up in the video, thus causing a confirmation bias that she was saying the lyrics that I heard. However, since I wasn't hearing the word "me" or "as" I decided to try to read her lips while listening and I think that because she has an accent, phonetically, I think she is saying, "If ya wan meh bad as evuh" to me does sound like "If ya wanna back the devil" but I know that's not what she is saying. - Submitted by: Bradley S Holmes
