Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Singing Nun

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
Il est vendredi, bonjour ('It's Friday, good morning')
The Real Lyrics:
Il ne parle que du bon Dieu ('He only talks about the Lord')
The Story: I had just started learning French in a class in high school. The teacher wrote the correct lyrics on the blackboard after the radio stations had been playing the song for a while and I was a little embarrassed to realize I'd read this French lyric wrong! - Submitted by: Doug Montgomery
