Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Kingsmen

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!).

Louie, Louie, oh no

Nee Ga Go

There's no girls around, but oh do we care

Oh that ship, I dream she's there
I smell the rose in her hair

The Kingsmen's, "Louie Louie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Won't you be my girl?
The Real Lyrics:
I said we gotta go.

The Kingsmen's, "Louie, Louie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Every night at ten I failed the weed.
The Real Lyrics:
Every night at ten, I laid her again.
The Story: We had a band in 1966 at Michigan State and quite honestly we made up a lot of our own lyrics. No one seemed to mind as long as there was enough beer. And the Kingsmen performed at our fraternity house (Sigma Nu) in 1966. What a blast. - Submitted by: Bill Costabile
The Kingsmen's, "Louie, Louie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I felt my bone in her hair.
The Real Lyrics:
I smell the rose in her hair.
The Story: I was sitting in my car with my girl friend when this song came on the radio shortly after it was first released. She said the song had dirty lyrics and I told her I didn't think so. She then whispered the above 'misheard' lyrics in my ear and blushed. After all this time I still think about that occasion and how shy she was that she had to whisper in my ear even though no one else was around. - Submitted by: Michael Curtis
The Kingsmen's, "Louie, Louie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
In 'Umm-al-Uwain, oh Lawd
I cut her up.
The Real Lyrics:
Louie, Louie, oh no
Me gotta go.
The Story: Riding a bus across the Alps, 'Louie Louie' came on the radio. Jim, a pal of mine, began singing these lines. I cracked up with laughter. 'Umm-al-Uwain is one of the sheikdoms that make up the United Arab Emirates, so this hints at a really lurid scenario (a harem intrigue?) - Submitted by: Maura
