Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Three Doors Down

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!).

Three Doors Down's, "Be Like That"
The Misheard Lyrics:
F*** me like that.
The Real Lyrics:
I can be like that.
The Story: I was driving in my car with my mother. We were listening to the radio and the song came on. It was fairly new, so I turned it up because I had never heard it. As it reached the chorus, my mother's eyes got big. She said to me, 'Did that song just say the 'F' word on the radio?' I thought it did too. Sure enough, it fired back up again and I was awed. But later, we found the real lyrics and still laugh about it. - Submitted by: Ryann Fradenburgh
Three Doors Down's, "Down Poison"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I've dreamed about this, 16 days away.
Now you're here, and my head lays... beside your body.
You put your hand on mine.
New poison,
Spinnin' round my mind.
The Real Lyrics:
I've dreamed about this
Sixteen days away.
Now you're here
And my head lays
Beside your body,
Pillowed under mine.
You were poison,
Spinning 'round my mind.
The Story: I've just always thought this was what it was and I'm 30 so I've been listening to this song for some time... Now that I think about that not being right I wonder where I got that from... But I still don't hear what it's supposed to be and I've checked the actual lyrics on 6 different well known lyric sites. My way still makes more sense to me. :-) - Submitted by: Jamie
Three Doors Down's, "When I'm Gone"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There's another world in sodomy
That you may never see.
The Real Lyrics:
There's another world inside of me
That you may never see.
The Story: I've ruined this song for many of my friends when I asked them if what I thought was really what Three Doors Down was singing. They now can't hear it any other way. - Submitted by: Matthew
