Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Twila Paris

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!).

Twila Paris', "Lamb of God"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Your only son; no sin too high.
The Real Lyrics:
Your only son; no sin to hide.
The Story: I used to hear a minister at my former church recite these lyrics in some of his sermons and invitations to Christian discipleship. He would recite the lyrics and then say something like, "Because of God's son Jesus Christ, no sin is too high for him to get you out of" or something like that. :-) - Submitted by: Richard
Twila Paris', "Runner"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Getting it on
The Real Lyrics:
Carry it home
The Story: I found it strange that a line like "getting it on" would be in a Christian song. - Submitted by: Colonel Corn
