Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Selena Gomez & The Scene

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!).

Selena Gomez & The Scene's, "Love You Like a Love Song"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I love you like a limestone baby.
The Real Lyrics:
I love you like a love song, Baby.
The Story: I heard this playing in a store, and my first impression of the line was "I love you like a limestone baby". That seemed weird. Since the line is oft-repeated, I got to hear it some more and gradually guessed what it was saying, but wasn't absolutely sure until I found the lyrics on a lyrics site. The funny part is, loving somebody "like a love song" makes scarcely more sense than loving someone "like a limestone baby". So turns out the real lyrics are scarcely less weird than my initial mishearing. - Submitted by: Karen Smith
Selena Gomez & The Scene's, "Summer's Not Hot"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The temperature is 99 and it can't get much higher
So come on over, Romeo, and let me start the fire
The Real Lyrics:
The temperature is 99 and it can get much hotter
So come on over, Romeo, and "vamos a la playa".
The Story: I heard this song against my will at least a hundred times when I tried to help my sister Nicole with online math homework. I misinterpreted a line in the chorus and thought Ms. Gomez said "let me start the fire". With the song's fast tempo, I easily misheard the song. Years later, I found out that the actual lyrics were "come on over, Romeo, and 'vamos a la playa'." Now I know why those 11 years of Spanish classes were helpful. - Submitted by: Joe the Crazy Conch
