Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Index

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.

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!).

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Linkin Park's, "From the Inside"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Everyone's after dust
The Real Lyrics:
Heavy thoughts sift through dust
The Story: I just assumed it meant something like the Dust in the Golden Compass movie. - Submitted by: Jane
Bring Me the Horizon's, "Shadow Moses"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Rise from the Danube, see!
Secrets of playtime they look to the grass.
The Real Lyrics:
Rise from the dead, you say
Secrets don't sleep till they're took to the grave
The Story: "Sandpit turtle" had already become a meme by this point. I thought I heard "Secrets of playtime" while watching a video on YouTube someone made of a Little Tikes "sandpit turtle" commercial someone made set to the song, Shadow Moses. I had to double check the actual lyrics. - Submitted by: Ryan Miller
