Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Strawberry Alarm Clock

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!).

Strawberry Alarm Clock's, "Incense and Peppermints"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Look at yourself ... yeah yeah.
The Real Lyrics:
Look at yourself ... young girl.
The Story: Whatever the "official" lyrics are, what Greg Munford actually SINGS on the "official" recording is "young girl." On this one, amiright has it wrong. I have been hearing this song since it was released in 1967 and never heard anything remotely like "yeah yeah" at that point in the song. You will hear the same, especially if headphones are used. - Submitted by: Mark Welsh

Young girl.
The Real Lyrics:
Look at yourself, look at yourself
Yeah, yeah.
The Story: Yeah, I used to listen to music while taking a bath, singing very loudly with my ears beneath the waterline. My older sister would pound and pound on the door all the while screaming, 'Listen to the words, just listen to the words (expletives deleted)!!!' - Submitted by: Darcy McGuire
