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...

Michael Jackson's, "Another Part Of Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You're just another Quartermain.
The Real Lyrics:
Your just another part of me.
The Story: I guess I watched too many of my mother's soap operas when I was a child. All I can assume is that I picked up the name from the Quartermain family on General Hospital because I don't know anyone else by that name. To this day those are the lyrics I hear in that song. I told my kids about it and even now that they are adults we all still laugh and sing about the Quartermains. - Submitted by: Marie
Kenny Loggins', "Danger Zone"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He is under tension, beggin' you to touch your hole
The Real Lyrics:
Metal under tension, beggin' you to touch and go
The Story: I heard this and I died laughing. - Submitted by: Tyler Theriault
