Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Ramones

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 Misheard Lyrics:
The kids are losing their minds
Let's drink pop!

The kids are losing their minds
The Blitzkrieg Bop!
The Story: My friend Melanie and I were listening to this song, and she says to me 'Why do they say 'let's drink pop'?' I was laughing so hard, and I corrected her. Now we always say 'The kids are losing their minds, let's drink pop!' - Submitted by: Laura
The Ramones', "Blitzkrieg Bop"

They're going through a tight wad
You get to lose your nerves, man
Let's kick butt!
The Real Lyrics:
They're going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The Blitzkrieg Bop!
The Story: It was on a Tony Hawk game and I was singing along. Since neither my brother or his friends knew the words, I didn't get embarassed in front of anyone who did. - Submitted by: Mike Morettini
The Ramones', "I Wanna Be Sedated"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna be fellated
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna be sedated
The Story: The first time I was told these lyrics were wrong, I was singing them loudly to my car stereo. There were six other people in the car, all of them laughing their asses off. (Seeing as how I am male, it was true for me, anyway.) - Submitted by: Anderson Whiteman
The Ramones', "I Wanna Be Sedated"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna piece of cake.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna be sedated.
The Story: I felt really stupid singing this out loud at a club, and then having a friend correct me. - Submitted by: Dimitri Panagos
The Ramones', "I Wanna Be Sedated"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I want a pizza bagel.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna be sedated.
The Story: My sister was rifling through the fridge one afternoon, looking for something to eat, while singing this song to herself. My mom overheard her singing, and goes 'Well, we have bagels in the fridge'. My sister replied, 'Huh???' So my mom explains how she thought my sister was singing 'I want a pizza bagel'. - Submitted by: Lisa
The Ramones', "I Wanna Be Sedated"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Nothing takes a you know where to grow old.
The Real Lyrics:
Nothing to do, nowhere to go.
The Story: I honestly had no idea what this line was saying until I read the lyrics. Then again, Joey Ramone's accent often rendered his words incomprehensible. I love him though. - Submitted by: Maya
The Ramones', "I Want You Around"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I want you right now
The Real Lyrics:
I want you around
The Story: It was a scene from "Rock and Roll High School", and the wrong lyrics were quite intimidating. Joey Ramone was in a teen girl's bedroom, she was laying on her bed and he was looming over her singing "I want you right now", which he wasn't. Oops. - Submitted by: Sharie
The Ramones', "Let's Shake"
The Misheard Lyrics:
That's s***!
The Real Lyrics:
Let's shake!
The Story: I was on a movie set and the song the band was performing was this one. And for most of the day I was singing, 'That's s***!' really enthusiastically along with the performer. Finally, my friend corrected me. - Submitted by: EJ
The Ramones', "Rock N Roll High School"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Spongebob
The Real Lyrics:
Fun Fun
The Story: Obviously, it's impossible they would've said this misheard lyric but my feeble little 11 year old mind thought I heard it. - Submitted by: SEINOV
The Ramones', "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She now is a punk rocker.
The Real Lyrics:
Sheena is a punk rocker.
The Story: At the time the last thing you wanted to be called was a poseur. The thought that somebody would go from preppy to a Mohawk overnight was a big no-no! - Submitted by: Macy
The Ramones', "Swallow My Pride"
The Misheard Lyrics:
On a bus ride
The Real Lyrics:
Swallow my pride.
The Story: My sister misheard this. I love the image I have of the Ramones all sitting on a bus with all the grandmas and their grandkids! - Submitted by: pickle*
The Ramones', "Swallow My Pride"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The cat's in a dilemma.
The Real Lyrics:
The kids are losing their minds.
The Story: So, here I am, singing my head off with my mother (an ex-punk) in the room. Since I'm not good at hearing exactly what Joey Ramone sings, I just sang the first thing that came into my head. My mother laughed me into the twenty-second century and then some. - Submitted by: Jack DeRippa
The Ramones', "Teenage Lobotomy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Dee Dee keeps me happy
The Real Lyrics:
DDT keeps me happy
The Story: Actually, I heard this lyric when I was writing a weird Dee Dee/ Joey slash story so that just made the lyric even funnier. - Submitted by: Alison McKenzie
