Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Prodigy

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!).

Music for the Jilted Generation album at
The Prodigy's, "Firestarter"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm a foster student
The Real Lyrics:
I'm a firestarter
The Story: Kept thinking it was having to do with being a foster student! - Submitted by: Cody Finke
The Prodigy's, "Get Up, Get Off"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Ugana gitaro
The Real Lyrics:
You've gotta get up.
The Story: My sister thought they were speaking 'Japanese' until we heard the succeeding line, which was '...If you wanna get off', then worked it out from there. Still, it's nice to think that The Prodigy are potentially conversant in other languages. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
The Prodigy's, "Memphis Bells"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Lick your b***s
Lick them twice
Come on, Puto, s*** - oh, nice.
The Real Lyrics:
Lick it once
Lick it twice
C'mon put that s*** on ice.
The Story: Obviously Princess Superstar is ordering her dog 'Puto' to perform - and commending him - in front of a live audience. What the show's actually about, though, remains to be speculated. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
The Prodigy's, "No Good (Start the Dance)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You're no wildebeest, I don't need nobody.
Don't need no one, that's no wildebeest
The Real Lyrics:
You're no good for me, I don't need nobody.
Don't need no one, that's no good for me
The Story: This song came out when I was 4 years old. My brother would get angry as I pranced around the house singing the lyrics wrong. - Submitted by: Will
The Prodigy's, "Phoenix"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Won't you believe me when I tell you
Burger King and margarine?
The Real Lyrics:
Would you believe me when I tell you
You're the king of my dreams?
The Story: The corresponding album is high digitalised and electronic, so it's sometimes hard to catch what the vocals are saying and this song was no exception. It did make me ponder afterwards the strange cravings the vocalist was so jubilant in proclaiming, separate from the nonsensical sentence. Burger King AND margarine? Tasty. I guess you can't get enough of that grease. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
