Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Scissor Sisters

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!).

Comfortably Numb album at
Scissor Sisters', "Don't Feel Like Dancing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
But my two feet can't find a way
You think that I lust upon the little socks you swing this way.
The Real Lyrics:
But my two feet can't find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft, shoop devil sway.
The Story: Erm, just my attraction to knee high socks were probably influencing my interpretation of the song (very nice image that gave!!!) - Submitted by: jamie
Scissor Sisters', "Filthy Gorgeous"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's not your business if I cross-dress
The Real Lyrics:
'Cos you're filthy
Ooh, and I'm gorgeous!
The Story: This lyric was actually misheard by my best friend. We were in the car and the song came on the radio, my friend started singing the misheard lyric and then turned to me and said "I've never understood the title of this song. Where does the Filthy/Gorgeous bit come in?" - Submitted by: Alice
