Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Go-Gos

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!).

Anna Cecile
The Real Lyrics:
Our lips are sealed.
The Story: My husband and I were just dating at the time. All of a sudden he turns to me and says, 'What did you just sing?' Of course, I replied, 'Our lips are sealed.' At which point he just got real quiet until he finally told me he always thought it was 'Anna Cecile'. He still hates it when I tell this story :) - Submitted by: Joy Schreck

The Misheard Lyrics:
Hollister Stier
The Real Lyrics:
Our lips are sealed.
The Story: I had just graduated Pharmacy School when this song came out. I had to learn the names of all of the companies that make pharmaceuticals and their products. One company that made allergy products was called Hollister Stier.(pronounced 'steer'). I thought it was strange that The Go-Gos would be singing about some medical business in Spokane, Washington. True story though. - Submitted by: Tim Andrews

The Misheard Lyrics:
Honest, Lucille!
The Real Lyrics:
Our lips are sealed.

The Go-Gos', "Our Lips Are Sealed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Honestly feel.
The Real Lyrics:
Our lips are sealed.
The Story: I thought the lead voice sounded like Pat Benatar, so I logged onto her website and listened to trax throughout her discography in order to determine the lyrics of the song. I must have listened to eighty songs before giving up and figuring that I misheard the lyric! As it turns out, I didn't even have the artist right! - Submitted by: Mike
The Go-Gos', "Our Lips Are Sealed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I love Cecil.

The Misheard Lyrics:
I love Cecile!
The Real Lyrics:
Our lips are sealed.
The Story: My little sister thought this was a very progressive lesbian love song defying the teenybopper image of Belinda Carlisle and crew. She wondered how they got away with such blatant homosexuality in the 80's. - Submitted by: TastyTrixie

I'm a tuxedo.

Our lips are sealed.
The Story: I was telling a friend about the book ''Scuse Me While I Kiss this Guy' and telling him some of the misheard lyrics. I told him 'Some people think the Go-Gos are singing 'Island of Seals.'' And he said, 'Oh, that's funny, because it's 'Honest I Feel.' What dummies!' And I had to laugh and tell him he was the dummy. - Submitted by: Liz
The Go-Gos', "Out Lips Are Sealed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Honest I feel.
The Real Lyrics:
Our lips are sealed.
The Story: I told my husband the story of 'Alex the Seal:', because my brother in law actually sings the song this way to his baby while he plays in the tub with his toy seal. Then my husband explained to me that he always thought it was 'Honest I feel.' How can you go so long without knowing the real words? It's beyond me. - Submitted by: Honest I feel
The Go-Gos', "We Got The Beat"
The Misheard Lyrics:
See the people walking down the street
Going by, f**king up the beat
The Real Lyrics:
See the people walking down the street
Fall in line just watching all their feet
The Story: Even though it was the early 80s me and several of my classmates thought this song had that word. After all Joan Jett's "Do Ya Wanna Touch?" also seemed to have f-bombs in it and it got radio airplay. Also, "She's So Cold" by the Stones had the G-word (radio didn't edit it) and "Start Me Up" was also played uncut (with the "you make a dead man come" biz intact). So there you are. - Submitted by: Viva Stars On 45!
