Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Four Seasons

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 Story: I was with my parents in the car, riding to a restaurant, when that song was being played. I asked why the song was about a guy with intestinal problems. - Submitted by: Your Worst Nightmare
The Four Seasons', "Working My Way Back to You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I let it slip away
Today and every day.
The Real Lyrics:
I let it slip away.
Been payin' every day.
The Story: I liked this "Oldie but goodie" (for its tune at least) for a long time and assumed I was hearing these two lines right. Then I saw a friend do it as a karaoke song, and was surprised by the words on the monitor to the second line above. Like I said, it is a nice song for its tune at least. My friend, in singing it, decided he didn't like some of the words and that he won't sing the song again. I agreed that at least there are some much better Four Seasons songs, including Ronnie, Let's Hang On, Save It For Me, and Opus 17. Interestingly. all those songs took much longer to be released on karaoke than this song did. - Submitted by: Karen Smith
