Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Young Rascals

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!).

Young Rascals', "Good Lovin'"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Doodle up.
The Real Lyrics:
Good lovin'.
The Story: A DJ on CKLW (a Canadian station) admitted that he had always thought the lyrics were 'Doodle up'. I cracked up. - Submitted by: Diane Davis
Young Rascals', "Good Lovin'"
The Misheard Lyrics:
One-two-three, groovin'
The Real Lyrics:
One-two-three, good lovin'
The Story: This is another case where getting these lyrics wrong caused me to get the song's title wrong. I heard them in a commercial for one of those recent hits collections, and the song title 'Groovin'' was displayed simultaneously with the lyrics being played (though they got the artists right). This was in early 1969, and it was some 20 years before I discovered that 'Groovin'' was a totally different song. - Submitted by: Keith Hampson
Young Rascals', "Groovin'"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Life would be ecstasy
You (or Hugh) and me and Leslie.
Hugh and me and Leslie.
The Real Lyrics:
Life would be ecstacy
You and me endlessly.
The Story: I bought the single back in the 60's and over the years I could never work out if it was 'you, or Hugh and me and Leslie, then one day about 30 years later I was singing the song to myself and suddenly realised that it was 'endlessly' with the accent on 'less' to make it fit the song better. The wheels grind slowly but get there in the end! - Submitted by: Nick Ritchie
