Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"You Spin Me Right Round"
Misheard Lyrics:
You give me white rum, baby, white rum,
like wretched baby, white rum rum rum.
Original Lyrics:
You spin me right round, baby, right round,
like a record playing.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Allison Cole

I heard this on the radio when was 9 or 10 yrs old. At the time, I thought I was so intelligent for even knowing the word "wretched". I tried to show off for my Dad and his buddies by walking into the living room and singing this lyric. "Dad, " I said, "listen to this song." After I sang it, he said to his friends "See that? My kid is SMART". I was so proud and I just sashayed out of the room with my head held high. I did not realize I'd been singing it wrong until I was 19 years old, driving cross country with a friend. This song came on, we're both singing, and she just looks at me and says "What are you singing?!" I could not believe that I didn't hear the correct lyrics! Even now, when I hear the song, I still hear "You give me white rum". My family sings it that way too just to make fun of me.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Brand New Lover"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Your sweet nature darling was too hard to swallow
I've got the solution I'm leaving tomorrow

and

Your sweet nature darling was too hard to swallow
I've made my decision I'm leaving tomorrow
Why They're Misrhymed:
"Swallow" doesn't rhyme with "tomorrow". Did he really think we'd mistake "swallow" for "sorrow" or something?
Submitted by: leifang
"Brand New Lover"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
What I really need to do is find myself a brand new lover
Somebody who lies with me and doesn't notice all the others
What I really need to do is find myself a brand new lover
Why They're Misrhymed:
Since when did 'lover' rhyme with 'others'? However, 'lover' does rhyme with itself quite well.
