Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Stereophonics

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!).

Stereophonics', "Dakota"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You make me feel like a worm
You make me feel like a worm
A worm.
The Real Lyrics:
You make me feel like the one
You make me feel like the one
The one.
The Story: ...But how does a worm feel exactly? Lonely, I'm guessing, deep in that soil travelling from here to there. So there is some sense in what I heard, though admittedly it was a rather peculiar simile to use and on the whole, it is incongruous to...well, everything else happening in the song. - Submitted by: Missy Bass
Stereophonics', "Handbags and Gladrags"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Drink a bottle full of wine
The Real Lyrics:
Drink a bottle full of rye
The Story: It was when I remember hearing "whiskey and wine" instead of "rye" in the song "American Pie" by Don McLean, so this was what I heard here. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
Stereophonics', "In My Day"
The Misheard Lyrics:
In my day, no-one searched through my turnips.
The Real Lyrics:
In my day, no-one searched through my turn-ups.
The Story: I was chatting to someone, who told me the right lyrics. They then posted my mistake on the official Stereophonics message board, so everyone could see it! - Submitted by: James Walker
Stereophonics', "More Life In A Tramps Vest"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There's more life, more life, more life in a transvest (ite)
The Real Lyrics:
There's more life, more life, more life it a tramp's vest
The Story: I was actually singing the correct lyrics and my mum started getting cross and saying how the song had nothing to do with transvestites. I had to then inform her that it was 'tramp's vest' not 'transvest'. - Submitted by: Hilary
