Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Troggs

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!).

20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of the Troggs album at
The Troggs', "Wild Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Wild thing, I think I love you
But I want an overture...
The Real Lyrics:
Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure...
The Story: The wun-ah-no word pair is followed way too closely by a muffled F in one instance of "for", which sounded like a V. The words "know for" were not enunciated separately at the pace of this version of the song. - Submitted by: Don Fortier
The Troggs', "Wild Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You make my boss sing
The Real Lyrics:
You make my heart sing
The Story: I was like "Who's the boss that really sings?" - Submitted by: Cody Finke
