Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> SoulVation Army Band

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!).

SoulVation Army Band's, "Dancing on a Daydream"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm dancing, dancing on a table
The Real Lyrics:
I'm dancing, dancing on a daydream
The Story: I just happened to recall an incident this morning. Back in the '70's, before cable tv became popular, we just had the broadcast channels at home. On one of the non-used channels in our area, if we tuned it in, we would pick up a local R & B radio station. Since there was so much snow and static in the background, I couldn't exactly hear one particular song I liked correctly. The one-hit wonder '70's R & B group, the SoulVation Army Band, had their song, 'Dancing on a Daydream' out at that time, and due to the tv's background noises, I heard the song as 'Dancing on a Table.' The funny thing is that I was only 16 or 17 at the time and didn't know what 'table dancing' was back then. - Submitted by: Sharon Krebs
