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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
One small voice, away too strong.
The Real Lyrics:
One small voice, a way to start.
The Story: On first listening to this on a Christmas CD of mine, it sounded exactly like they said "One small voice, away too strong". But I wondered why they would say that, as it doesn't go along at all with the song generaly, which is about the good that one small voice can do. So calling it "too strong" just wouldn't make sense. I listened again, more closely, but the pronunciation of that line was obscure. With some difficulty, I found the words online. It was a bit hard because there are several different "One Small Voice" songs with different lyrics, but with some confusing resemblance among them. The version that came up most was by Sesame Street. Its second verse seemed to start off similar to this song's first verse, but soon it was clear that they weren't the same. Finally I found this version and learned the correct lyrics. - Submitted by: Amber Wayland
