Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sir Mix-a-Lot

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!).

Sir Mix-a-Lot's, "Baby Got Back"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I like big guts and I cannot lie
The Real Lyrics:
I like big butts and I cannot lie
The Story: I realized it was an inappropriate song that even kids cannot listen to even though it was a huge hit. Even MTV initially banned the video for this song. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
Sir Mix-a-Lot's, "Baby Got Back"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Makin' me salami!
The Real Lyrics:
Makin' me so horny!
The Story: When I was about 10 or 12, a couple of friends and I were singing the song. One girl yelled this part (using the wrong lyrics) and she's never lived it down since. She didn't even know what 'horny' meant. - Submitted by: 03ponti
