Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sarah Brightman

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!).

Sarah Brightman's, "Deliver Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The Real Lyrics:
Deliver me
The Story: I would have thought to have heard whatever. It's not's "Deliver Me". Pun intended - Submitted by: Cody Finke
Sarah Brightman's, "Figlio Perduto"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Figlio di puto
The Real Lyrics:
Figlio perduto
The Story: I knew what the lyrics were, but the words do sound somewhat (if you're not listening closely) like 'figlio di puto'; 'puto' being the masculine form of the (Spanish) word 'puta,' which means 'whore' or 'b****'. 'Puto' suggests a gay male or merely a sexually loose man, depending on where it's used. - Submitted by: Diddims
Sarah Brightman's, "Free"
The Misheard Lyrics:
When the birds of freedom fall
The Real Lyrics:
When the bars of freedom fall
The Story: If the line were 'birds of freedom', it would suggest that Sarah goes out every night, hunting to kill to distract herself from the pain of being alone. - Submitted by: John D'Shane
Sarah Brightman's, "Mysterious Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Spring time entangles.
The Real Lyrics:
Springtime in Tangeir.
The Story: My sister and I kept arguing over the lyrics, so we made a bet that whoever was wrong had to post their mistake on She won. Oh well. - Submitted by: Josh, the Hottie
