Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> WASP

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!).

Animal (F**k like a Beast) album at
WASP's, "Animal (F*** Like a Beast)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm the wolf with the sheepskins clothing
I'm lying here and texting you.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm the wolf with the sheepskins clothing
I lick my chops and you're tasting good
The Story: So I've listened to WASP since I was a very young kid in the '80s. (Mom was/is a hairmetalhead forever) I never though much about the lyrics then but as I've gotten older, and paid more attention to the lyrics, I always thought it sounded like he was talking about texting. Much like Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me", and "red iPhones", surely this is a symptom of technological progression making an impression on us, no? I feel like back then no one would have misheard this lyric. - Submitted by: Shane B.
