Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Wham

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!).

Wham's, "I Want Your Sex"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Satan is on my side
The Real Lyrics:
It's taken so much time
The Story: A right-wing fanatic wrote to the entertainment editor of the local newspaper to complain about the 'offensive' lyrics of Wham's song. This person was particularly perturbed by the words 'Don't look in the Bible. Just look in my eye' (also misheard) and 'Satan is on my side'. On the point of the latter lyric, he or she concluded with this comment: 'Mr. Michael doesn't know how right he is.' - Submitted by: jorje mikal
