Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Zapp

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!).

Zapp's, "More Bounce To The Ounce"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Welcome to the Alps.
The Real Lyrics:
More bounce to the ounce
The Story: Listening with 2 others to the song. I announced at the end that this was a stupid song for black folks to sing. One person fell to the floor laughing; the other said, "It's not 'Welcome to the Alps'; it's 'More bounce to the ounce'." I replied, "This explains a great deal." - Submitted by: P Cass
Zapp's, "More Bounce to the Ounce"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Corn Pops, Cheerios
The Real Lyrics:
More bounce to the ounce
The Story: I was in the car with my parents, sister, and best friend. The song comes on, we're singing along, and of course, i'm singing at the top of my lungs. My mom starts laughing and asks what i said. Of course, i was stupid enough to say it, and they all laughed at me. The next day at school, at least 20 people came up and asked if i had corn pops or cheerios for breakfast. - Submitted by: Pokey
