Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sia

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!).

Sia's, "Chandelier"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Potty girls don't get hurt.
Don't feel and don't sing. When will I ever learn?
I push you down, I push you down.

Party girls don't get hurt.
Don't feel anything, when will I learn?
I push it down, I push it down.
The Story: This was the first Sia song I had heard (and I'm in love with her music now) and I wasn't prepared for her Australian accent. I'm absolutely terrible with accents. - Submitted by: Kensington
