Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Trenyce

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!).

Trenyce's, "I Need You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I need you, like murder, like breasts, like Wayne
The Real Lyrics:
I need you, like water, like breath, like rain
The Story: The original lyrics to this, sung by LeAnn Rimes, are nothing great. But when sung by Trenyce (aka Lashundra Collins) during the second season of American Idol, they became hilarious. Trenyce's pronunciation was never her strong point, but she butchered this song completely. The misheard lyrics later took on a life of their own, as a story title posted in an American Idol discussion group. It took me years to find out what the real lyrics were. - Submitted by: Jeffrey Kasten
