Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Used

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!).

Used's, "Wake The Dead"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, this is not natural
A bunch of ho's where the dead used to be, on the ground.
Forget supernatural
'Cause all those lesbian thieves are out walking the street
Yeah, with no heartbeat.
The Real Lyrics:
Oh this is not natural
A bunch of holes where the dead used to be, on the ground
Forget supernatural
'Cause all those resting in peace, are out walking the street
Yeah, with no heartbeat.
The Story: I was walking to take my high school regents and listening to this while walking past a crowd of construction workers. I already knew the words, but wasn't concentrating, and that's what I heard. I burst out laughing. Since then, I continue to hear the incorrect lyrics! - Submitted by: MmnahCannon
