Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sugarhill Gang

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!).

Sugarhill Gang's, "Rapper's Delight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Then you run to the store for quick relief
From a bottle of cake or Pepsi.
The Real Lyrics:
Then you run to the store for quick relief
From a bottle of Kaopectate.
The Story: When I thought they were saying 'cake or Pepsi' I used to think of an empty pint-size Pepsi glass stuffed with birthday cake and then I thought, 'How do you stuff a Pepsi bottle with birthday cake?' - Submitted by: Piper Piper
