Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The View

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!).

Hats off to the Buskers album at
The View's, "Wasted Little D.j's"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It-aly, Italy and J.D.
The Real Lyrics:
Astedwae, Littlae, Ejaysdae!'
The Story: This song has been one of my songs of the summer, but I found the shout-a-long chorus incomprehensible. I had to look up the lyrics on a website, because I had no clue what they were on about. The View (from Dundee) wrote the lyrics in a Scottish slang for the name of the song: 'Astedwae, Littlae, Ejaysdae' It turns out to be 'Wasted little D.J's' in English terms we can all understand. Stupidly enough, being English, I thought the chorus was about celebrating Italy's 2006 World Cup win by swigging Jack Daniel's!' - Submitted by: Gonk
