Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Vic Mizzy

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!).

Vic Mizzy's, "The Addams Family Theme"

Vic Mizzy's, "The Addams Family"
The Misheard Lyrics:
A broomstick you can crawl on
The Real Lyrics:
A Brewster you can call on.
The Story: The Brewsters were the crazy sisters who killed potential male housemates in the 1944 movie Arsenic and Old Lace, which had a young Cary Grant acting over-the-top crazy, even by his own admission, because he just didn't believe the movie was that good. It was based on a play. I believed when I first heard the lyrics on the original airings of the show that it was about that Brewster Family this line referred to, & I don't hear "a broomstick" even yet. Listen to it. - Submitted by: Diane Shaw

Vic Mizzy's, "The Addams Family"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Their house's name is Eam/Ian

Their house is a museum
The Story: I saw re-runs of this show at an early age, but I was shocked to find out today that they didn't name their house, let alone call it "Eam". - Submitted by: Nicholas
