Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Vicki Lawrence

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!).

Vicki Lawrence's, "Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He was on his way from Canada
Andy Warhol said hello, and he said hi, what's doin bro?
Don't trust your soul to no backwards Southern lawyer.
The Real Lyrics:
He was on his way home from Candletop
Andy Wolloe said hello, and he said hi, what's doin', Wo
Don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer.
The Story: I've been hearing this song since I was ten, and nothing about the mishead lyric has struck me as odd until tonight. I just thought there must have been some other guy in this little town named Andy Warhol. Then all the sudden I thought of 'I Shot Andy Warhol' and my husband and I have been laughing for an hour. So I googled and found this website. Lili Taylor should totally cover this song. - Submitted by: Maria padhila
Vicki Lawrence's, "The Night That The Lights Went Out In Georgia"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Andy Warhol said 'Hello'.
The Real Lyrics:
Andy Wolloe said 'Hello'.
The Story: When I was a kid and first heard this song, I thought it sounded like 'Andy Warhol', at a time when I'd heard of Andy Warhol but had no clear idea who he was. As I learned more and more about him, he seemed less and less to fit into that song, so finally I concluded I surely wasn't hearing that name right. But it wasn't until we had internet lyric sites that I finally could discover the actual name of the Andy in this song. - Submitted by: JoAnne Hurley
