Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Wayne Newton

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!).

Wayne Newton's, "Danke Schoen"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't be shamed
Darling, don't be shamed.
The Real Lyrics:
Danke schoen
Darling, danke schoen.
The Story: My boyfriend was singing the song correctly when I bursted out in laughter at him, thinking the real lyrics were, 'Don't be shamed, darling, don't be shamed'. I belted out my version, only to be greeted by an equal amount of laughter from him. We were on the floor laughing, until I realized that he was right. - Submitted by: Jackie

The Misheard Lyrics:
And best of all she tore her wedding gown.

Your best white orchids for her wedding gown.
The Story: When I was young Mom asked me what I was singing so I sang the words...She still laughs to this day. It's one of her favorite stories. It wasn't till years later when I heard the song again that I heard the what the words were. - Submitted by: Patricia Tyska
