Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Young Rscals

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 Rscals', "Groovin'"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You and me and Leslie
Groovin' on a Sunday Afternoon.
The Real Lyrics:
You and me endlessly
Groovin' on a Sunday Afternoon.
The Story: For about 10 years from the time this song came out in the mid '60's I thought it was odd that the lyrics would mention a woman's name that had nothing to do with the song. It was not until I bought the Best of the Rascals and they showed lyrics that I found out the word was 'endlessly' instead. Did I feel stupid? Yep. But if you listen real carefully you can still hear 'Leslie'! - Submitted by: Larry Matthews
