Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Stephen Stills

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!).

Stephen Stills', "Love The One You're With"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There's a law in the fifteenth house, and these apply with a girl.
The Real Lyrics:
And there's a rose in a fisted glove. The eagle flies with the dove.
The Story: I was about 12 when this song came out, and my misheard lyrics totally made sense to me! - Submitted by: Frank
Stephen Stills', "Love the One You're With"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And if Aunt Bee is the one you love
Honey, love the one you're with.
The Real Lyrics:
And if you can't be with the one you love
Honey, love the one you're with.
The Story: Amazing what you can convince people to believe. Told my boss the wrong lyrics. Now every time the song comes on our Muzak (it's set to the Oldies), he winces in pain, knowing that what I told him is wrong, but he can't help but hear it that way! - Submitted by: Evan
