Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sylvia

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!).

RCA Country Legends album at
Sylvia's, "Nobody"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I can love you like nobody can
Using butter.
The Real Lyrics:
I can love you like nobody can
Even better.
The Story: My girlfriend used to sing this song to me, as she performed the lyrics the way she heard them (as above.) Use your imagination! - Submitted by: Phillip
Sylvia's, "Y Viva Espana"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If you'd like to check and lock the door
The Real Lyrics:
If you'd like to chat a matador
The Story: My granny had this single - she bought it when she came back from Spain that year and she'd sing it with the line above misquoted. I always assumed until about ten minutes ago that that was the correct line. My granny died a few years ago and I think I will always sing that line wrong in memory of her. - Submitted by: Birmingham bear
