Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Stone Roses

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 Stone Roses', "I Wanna Be Adored"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna be a doored.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna be adored.
The Story: I loved this song when it came out, but I was a bit puzzled by it too. Just what is a 'doored'. I knew it wasn't some cockney rhyming slang or strange British vernacular. Then one night, I was sitting round at a friends and we were listening to the song. Suddenly the penny dropped and I exclaimed loudly 'Oh! adored! I get it!' My friends nearly pissed themselves laughing. Since I worked for a record label at the time, it became quite the joke. - Submitted by: Jarsar
The Stone Roses', "I Wanna Be Adored"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna be your dog
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna be adored
The Story: Well, DJ Gregarious here in Portland plays this song very last after his shows. Everyone seems to love it, and my friend and I would sing loudly, I wanna be your dog!!! The local newspaper had an interview with afore mentioned cute DJ where he mentioned the song he loves to play at the end of each night. It turns out, I was way wrong! - Submitted by: Cara Clark
