Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Squirtgun

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!).

Squirtgun's, "Social"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Their social norms and social schools Social skills, and social tools They tell us all we'd better socialize Ignoring all our social drives
The Real Lyrics:
Their social norms and social rules We're social scum and they're social fools They tell us all their social lies Ignoring all our social cries
The Story: My head is quite a juke box, I always tend to learn lyrics by listening to the song 2-3 times, and usually don't bother about checking the lyrics. So this is not really misheard lyrics, but the mixture of the facts that I liked the song when heard it for the first time (The opening song for Kevin Smith's Mallrats), so it got into my pretty easily (well I thought it did), and that English is not my first language. - Submitted by: Sandevistan
