Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Silverchair

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!).

Silverchair's, "Do You Feel The Same?"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Could I be red if I was see-through?
The Real Lyrics:
Could I be read if I was see-through?
The Story: I actually made a comment in the nonsensical lyrics section asking how could he be 'red' and see-through and that there might be an alternate meaning. That, however, was before I realized the type of 'read' he was talking about! - Submitted by: sXe LeXi 5X2

The Misheard Lyrics:
Through the wind you crawl
And laugh at burning Jews.
The Real Lyrics:
Through the wind you crawl
And laugh at burning dunes.
The Story: I have nothing against Jewish people at all, for one of my best friends is Jewish. He's the one that pointed out one day that that's what that line sounded like. I never saw it until he pointed it out. - Submitted by: Gregory Johnston
Silverchair's, "Tomorrow"
The Misheard Lyrics:
They're going to waste you, black boy
The Real Lyrics:
You're gonna waste you, fat boy.
The Story: It's always sounded like black boy to me which is completely racist but since it was 1995 I just figured it was something done in protest, about racism or something. - Submitted by: Dark

You wait till tomorrow.
You wait till tomorrow.
You gonna wait till, fat boy.
Fat boy, wait till tomorrow.
You gonna wait till, fat boy.

The Story: Another favorite song that found on my playlist. About this song: "Tomorrow" featuring an acoustic guitar intro and electric guitar coda. With the theme of poverty, the song is regarded as an alternative rock anthem and part of art rock. "Tomorrow" became their greatest hit to date with topping in their native country, Australia, and New Zealand. It also topping on both Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks and Album Rock Tracks. "Tomorrow" also peaking at #28 on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay Chart and #59 in the UK. The follow-up singles are less popular than its previous single and only popular in Australia and some countries and sometimes there are other singles that no charting on any charts at all. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
