Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Stone Roses

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!).

Stone Roses', "I Wanna Be Adroed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna be a door
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna be adored
The Story: I wasn't really me who misunderstood the lyrics. It was in Stockholm in the beginning of the 80's when the Roses played there. The swedish audience thought Ian Brown sung I wanna be a door. So after the gig people came up to the band and sung 'I wanna be a door'. - Submitted by: Carolina Larsen
