Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Young Rascals

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:
You and me and Leslie
The Real Lyrics:
You and me endlessly
The Story: My teenage daugher, Beth, was actually the one who 'misheard' these lyrics. I was driving and when she sang along with the radio I questioned what she had said. When I enlightened her as to the real lyrics we had an hysterical laughing episode. - Submitted by: charline desjardins

Life would be ecstasy, you and me and Leslie
The Real Lyrics:
Life would be ecstasy, you and me endlessly
The Story: For decades, whenever I heard this song, I would wonder, 'Who the he** is Leslie'? Finally, on a road trip with my wife, the song came on the radio, and I asked her that question, and she told me what the right lyrics are. - Submitted by: Major Mikey
