Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Stevie Nicks and Don Henley

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!).

Stevie Nicks and Don Henley's, "Leather and Lace"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Give me your leather, Jake Grumby my babe
The Real Lyrics:
Give to me your leather, take from me my lace.
The Story: I thought she was singing about her boyfriend, Jake Grumby. I only found out a couple of years ago that I had heard this incorrectly my whole life. My wife thinks my version is hilarious, and I can still get her to laugh just by saying the name Jake Grumby. - Submitted by: Ken
