Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Gap Band

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 Gap Band's, "You Dropped A Bomb On Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You re just a bumblebee.
The Real Lyrics:
You dropped a bomb on me.
The Story: I was a DJ in Tijuana,Mexico in the late 70s/early 80s when a freind of mine named Lili asked me to play that new song "You're Just a Bumblebee". I said sing it for me. She did, and I played it for her 10 minutes later after I had picked myself up off the ground and had stopped laughing. - Submitted by: Andre L. Boulanger

You took the farm away.
The Real Lyrics:
You dropped the bomb on me, baby
You dropped the bomb on me.
The Story: Just singing in the car with my friends in the early 90's when I was 18 or so. They just stopped singing and watched me and then asked what the h*** I was singing. I'm still not totally convinced that it says 'you dropped the bomb on me'. - Submitted by: Marcia Henderson
