Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Cast Of 'Hee Haw'

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 Cast Of 'Hee Haw''s, "Gloom, Dispair and Agony On Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Remove this spell of agony on me
The Real Lyrics:
Gloom, despair and agony on me.
The Story: I didn't mis-hear the lyric, my cousin David did and he would sing it with those words instead of the correct lyrics. He actually had just about the whole song wrong as he sang it (he was like 8 years old back then) and the whole thing was hilarious (That and his version of the Dukes of Hazzard opening theme) but I don't recall the rest - just that part only. - Submitted by: NickT.
