Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> T-Shirt

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!).

T-Shirt's, "You Sexy Thing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I want a lover with a CD player
The Real Lyrics:
I want a lover with a speedy butt
The Story: This song came out when I was about 8, and I used to draw a lot when I was a kid. I found a drawing of a "movie" I made up about this song while cleaning out a cupboard a few years ago. Although all the other lyrics were correct, one comic panel or "scene" had the 2 singers sitting in the car driving down a road singing "I want a lover with a CD player." In 1997 I thought that it was really cool to have a CD player and if you had a boyfriend he had to have a CD player or he wasn't cool. - Submitted by: Me
