Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Supremes

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 Supremes', "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If you need me, put your c**k on me
The Real Lyrics:
If you need me, call me
The Story: I was listening to it on my local radio station and heard it. I thought that it was very rude so I rung up the radio station to complain! I went live on air to send out my views. I felt a complete d*ckhead afterwards when hearing it again!!!!!!! :) - Submitted by: Simon Burrows
The Supremes', "It's All Your Fault (Version 2)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You've got me in your car, and there I'll remain.
The Real Lyrics:
You've got me in your power, and there I remain.
The Story: I heard this when searching on iTunes for Supremes tracks and came across this secret gem. I got to love it so much as it's so reminiscent of Baby Love and Where Did Our Love Go combined. I kept hearing this lyric and thinking "why would The Supremes talk about someone in the back of their car?" and of course I couldn't stop laughing when I found the original lyrics. - Submitted by: Brandon Thompson
The Supremes', "Mother Dear (Version 1)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm calling keeper (keeper, keeper).
Keeper in love each day.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm falling deeper (deeper, deeper), deeper in love each day.
The Story: Heard this on the cancelled track 'Mother Dear' from More Hits By The Supremes and always assumed Diana was saying "I'm calling keeper" as if to say she is going to keep her lover. - Submitted by: Brandon Thompson
The Supremes', "Where Did Our Love Go"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Baby baby, where did our love go? And all of your promises, all the love I ever mourned?
The Real Lyrics:
Baby baby, where did our love go? And all of your promises of a love forevermore.
The Story: This year I just got into Motown music, starting with The Four Tops, The Temptations and then The Supremes. This song was played by a friend after he broke up with his girlfriend..in which me and this girl are now together. I always took a liking to this song and brought the 'Baby Love: The Collection" album. Turns out I was singing it wrong all this time. I never searched the lyrics for The Supremes as I can pick it up from Diana Ross's voice easily, and to me it always seemed the lyrics were "all the love I ever mourned." as I felt it corresponded to the lyrics in the song. I think I'll have to change now :). I'm surprised I'm not the only one who has misheard this. - Submitted by: Brandon Carroll
The Supremes', "You Can't Hurry Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Trust in the good time
The Real Lyrics:
Trust, give it time
The Story: Phil Collins misheard the lyrics of the original Supremes song and sang it wrong as "Trust in the good time." The original Supremes song says "Trust, give it time." - Submitted by: James Owens
The Supremes', "You Can't Hurry Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You can't have Reva
No, you'll just have to wait.
The Real Lyrics:
You can't hurry love
Oh you'll just have to wait.
The Story: I imagined Reva as a bitchy red-headed woman, who was playing hard to get, stringing a poor guy along. - Submitted by: sondi
The Supremes', "You Can't Hurry Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:

The Real Lyrics:
You can't hurry love
The Story: woman on t.v. telling how when she was a kid and how she used to think the Supremes were singing about Kangaroo Love - Submitted by: Joe
