Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sisters Of Mercy

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!).

Sisters Of Mercy's, "This Corrosion"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hey now, hey Brown Cow!
The Real Lyrics:
Hey now, hey now now!
The Story: I was introducing my girlfriend to the group and played this song for her. She asked why they were singing about brown cows and I asked what she meant. She misheard the lyrics as such (which is closer to a nursery rhyme of old). - Submitted by: Bart
Sisters Of Mercy's, "Vision Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Another black hole in the killing zone
The little old man in the methadrome
The Real Lyrics:
Another black hole in the killing zone
a little more mad in the methodrone
The Story: I had asumed that the little old man was (or contained) the 'other black hole' and that the M in methadrome was a pun making the drug into a place. as it turned out, the o in methodrone was a pun making the line a reference to Shakespeare's Hamlet (method in madness) - Submitted by: Joff

The Misheard Lyrics:
Some day
Some way
Sunset dare, sunset player
The Real Lyrics:
Some day
Some day
Some say prayers, I say mine
