Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sammy Davis, Jr.

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!).

Sammy Davis, Jr.'s, "The Candy Man"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Who can take a sunrise
Pickle it with dew?
The Real Lyrics:
Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it with dew?
The Story: For a long time I thought my misheard lyrics were correct. After all, isn't pickling a sunrise with dew just as feasable as sprinkling it with dew? Then one time, I was heard singing the song that way, and I got some real laughs. One hearer said he was actually worried about dying laughing as a result. - Submitted by: Sheila Evans
