Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Uncle Kracker

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!).

Uncle Kracker's, "Follow Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Follow me
Everything is alright
I'll be the one
To tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
They will find your body in the sea.

Follow me
Everything is alright
I'll be the one
To tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me.
The Story: I head it first on the radio, and my mistake led me to believe it was some terrible pedophile jingle. Now that I've been corrected (some time later), I've come to prefer my 'original' version. - Submitted by: Scott

Swim through your veins like a p*** in the sea
The Real Lyrics:
And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea.
The Story: My mother was blaring the Uncle Kracker CD in the car while one of my friends was carpooling with us. When he heard this song, he started singing along with the misheard lyrics. At first, my mother was mad at him for the language, but she forgave him when she realized that that was actually what he thought the lyrics were. - Submitted by: Mayu
