Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Steps

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!).

Steps', "5, 6, 7, 8"
The Misheard Lyrics:
My poop scoopin' lady is driving me crazy
The Real Lyrics:
My boot scootin' baby is drivin' me crazy
The Story: I always thought this was a cat singing about her cat lady owner. The cat lady shoos her cat out of the litterbox to scoop the poop and clean it, and the cat hates having to leave the comfy litterbox, hence the poop scoopin' lady is driving the cat crazy and the cat sings a song about it. - Submitted by: Kevin

When the feeling's gone
And you can't go on
When you lose control
And you got no soul
