Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Supergrass

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!).

Supergrass', "Pumping On Your Stereo"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Can you hear us humping?
Now you're staring - oh!
The Real Lyrics:
Can you hear us
Pumping on your stereo?
The Story: When this was played as an exclusive on radio at the time, I thought it was a song about being caught out 'in the act', shall we say. I wondered why they were asking if they could be heard humping and then sounding surprised when attention is turned their way. Obviously, when I heard the title afterwards I breathed a sigh of relief, pleased that the ridiculous chorus I thought I heard was all a figment of my imagination. - Submitted by: Monokini
