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!).

Macy Gray's, "I Try"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
I wear goggles when you come knocking
Goodbye and I choke I try to walk away and I stumble
The Real Lyrics:
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here
Goodbye and I choke I try to walk away and I stumble
The Story: Always thought wearing goggles was a bit strange! Singing it loudly at work when it was kindly told it was the wrong words! - Submitted by: Marion

The Misheard Lyrics:
I want to be with U.F.U.A.
The Real Lyrics:
I want to be with you everywhere.
The Story: I didn’t know what the U.F.U.A. was, but I sincerely thought that’s what they were saying. - Submitted by: Steven K.
