Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Snap

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!).

Snap's, "The Power"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I've got the power He-man has my heart
He-man's gonna breake my heart
He will break my heart
Yeah, he'll break my heart of hearts.
The Real Lyrics:
I've got the power
He's gonna break my heart
He's gonna break my heart of hearts
He's gonna break my heart
He's gonna break my heart of hearts.
The Story: My copy of the song had someone talking about castle Greyskull at the beginning. So I thought it had to be a song about "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe", though I was never quite sure why He-man would break that woman's heart. - Submitted by: Marisa
Snap's, "The Power"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's skinny, skinny, it's skinny Carmeletta.
The Real Lyrics:
It's getting, getting, it's getting kinda heavy.
The Story: Just another misheard lyric from my youth. Interesting enough, I heard "It's getting kinda hectic" later in the song correctly. - Submitted by: Karl
Snap's, "The Power"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The kitten, the kitten, the kitten's got a hatchet.
The Real Lyrics:
It's gettin', it's gettin', it's gettin' kind of heavy
The Story: I knew what the lyric was, but my Mom didn't. We were arguing about something, and in the midst of the argument she says 'And that horrible music you've been listening to, 'The kitty, the kitty, the kitty's got a hatchet', I am ashamed of you!' I replied, 'No,'s gettin', it's gettin, it's getting kind of hectic.' (which was what I thought the lyric was at the time) Needless to say, she felt really stupid, the argument ended quickly, she never razzed me about my music again, and consequently my friends and I made fun of her about it for years! - Submitted by: Kai Baird
