Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Wagman & Tartaglia

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!).

Wagman & Tartaglia's, "D.A.R.E. Song"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And it's more than just the same
Crack and cocaine is a drug.
The Real Lyrics:
Then it's more than just a shame
Our lack of caring is a crime.
The Story: It was around this time when I heard that PSA on the radio where Walter Cronkite talked about something related to drug abuse ('...cocaine and crack ought to scare you to death'). Whenever I would sing that line, on 'drug' (real lyric: 'crime'), I would point my right finger from left to right, at less than a 180-degree span. - Submitted by: Ranger Ian
