Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Knack

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!).

Rice a Roni
The Real Lyrics:
My Sharona
The Story: My dad has a lot of old records and we decided to dig them out. I heard 'My Sharona' for the first time, and I thought the singers were saying 'Rice a Roni'. So then, we dig out a box of 'Rice a Roni', and we shaked it around to make a little instrument. We even had it on video. - Submitted by: Tyler
