Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Visage

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:
We fight to grind
The Real Lyrics:
We fade to grey
The Story: It wasn't me, it was my mate Paul, who was singing along to a tape in the car with three mates. They had to get him to stop the tape and sing it on his own, then didn't stop laughing for ten minutes. What on earth could 'fight to grind' mean anyway? - Submitted by: Lee Hill
