Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Tu Pac Shakkur W/ Dr. Dre

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!).

Tu Pac Shakkur W/ Dr. Dre's, "California Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Now it's 9 to 5, and they clock me and watch me
Diamonds shinin', lookin' like a Rob Liberace.
The Real Lyrics:
Now it's '95 and they clock me and watch me
Diamonds shinin' lookin' like I robbed Liberace.
The Story: The entire time I have listened to this song, I thought he was sayin 9 to 5. I heard it on a radio station last week (in '05) and realized this song was 10 years old. It's not hearing songs. I grew up with on oldies stations, but this lyric that made me realize I'm now old! - Submitted by: Dan Fletcher
