Some songs have titles that aren't used in the lyrics, and end up becoming better known for their lyrics than their title. Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" is better known for the refrain "Everybody must get stoned" than it is for the title.

|The Cardigans||Lovefool||Love me, love me, say the you love me... - Joe H|
|The Carpenters||Superstar||"Don't you remember you told me you loved me, baby?" - crazydon|
|Cat Stevens||Bad Penny||"Oh, no, don't say those same idle lies|
I-I've heard them before."
From the album "Buddha and The Chocolate Box". - oldsongs
|Cat Stevens||Father and Son||It's more of a scripted song where the father sings one part and the son sings the next. And "I have to go away" is mentioned more in this song. - Paul Warren|
|CBS Radio||Laid||James Gang and cover version by Matt Nathanson - Brian Thomas|
|The Charlatans U.K.||Polar Bear||"Your not one of those...". The same album contain's a song called "Your not very well", so I cant tell if these guys are ignorant or just not comfortable with the english language. Either way , they SHOULD be able to express themselves, as they are from the U.K. - princejellyfish|
|Charlie Daniels||Uneasy Rider||The song about a hippie's encounter with angry patrons of a "redneck" bar is still funny--and timely---today. - Country|
|Charlotte Church||She Moved Through The Fair||Lyrics include "She went through the fair" but never "She moved through the fair". Opening line is "My young love said to me", which might form an "alternate title". On the other hand, the words that end the first and last verses are "It will not be long, love, 'til our wedding day". That is another excerpt that might be the best known words and / or form an "alternate" title. - Karen Smith|
|Charlotte Church||Gabriel's Message||"The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came" is the opening line, and therefore might be a "title" by which the song could be better known. It conatins the only mention of Gabriel in the lyrics, and that mention is in the nominative case, not the possessive case, as is found in the title. And the word "message" is entirely absent from the lyrics. - Ava Murphy|

|Christmas Traditional||The Cherry Tree Carol||Begins "When Joseph was an old man, An old man was he," The first part of that might make an alternate "title". Though a cherry tree is referred to in the lyrics, the word "carol" is never found there. - Ava Murphy|
|Chuck Berry||Run Rudolph Run||He sings "Run, run, Rudolph" in the song; never "Run, Rudolph, run." - crazydon|

|Circa Survive||Handshakes at Sunrise||We wont stop until the dawn has Given its all to you - Katy|

|The Cowsills||The Rain, The Park, And Other Things||I've heard it called "The Flower Girl" instead of its official title. The words "rain" and "park" are scattered through the lyrics, but never the words "other things" or the entire phrase that is the title.
