Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Uncle Kracker ft. Dobie Gray

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
Gimme the beach, boy’s and free my soul
Babies babies babies have to rock ‘n’ roll, so drift away
The Real Lyrics:
Gimme the beat, boys, and free my soul
Wanna get lost in your rock ‘n’ roll and drift away
The Story: I was at a friend's apartment swimming. I heard this song; it sounded like “give the beach boys and free my soul babies babies babies have to rock ‘n’ roll so drift away”. I was confused for a bit. Why would Uncle Kracker wanna talk about babies? - Submitted by: Noah Phillips
The Misheard Lyrics:
I want you to know I believe in your Son
The Real Lyrics:
I want you to know I believe in your song
The Story: I thought it was a Christian praise & worship song, hence "believe in your Son." - Submitted by: Tommy
