Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Notorious B.I.G.

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 could have sworn the late Biggie Smalls was rapping references to Pokemon and Blue's Clues, both up and coming TV shows at the time this song came out soon after he was murdered. Although Pokemon was a huge hit in Japan, it didn't come to North America until 1998. But Pokemon was a video game franchise from the beginning. - Submitted by: Cody Finke

The Misheard Lyrics:
It's all about the Entemanns, baby!
The Real Lyrics:
It's all about the Benjamins, baby.
The Story: I heard the song on the radio several times and would always sing along. He was a big guy & so I assumed it was his tribute to his favorite snackfood. - Submitted by: Josie VanMoore
