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!).

Indexes: [#] [A] [B] [C] [D] [E] [F] [G] [H] [I] [J] [K] [L] [M] [N] [O] [P] [Q] [R] [S] [T] [U] [V] [W] [Y] [Z]

The Story: I always thought it was "Even lovers need to have a day far away from each other". I kept thinking for decades that why is he sad (and pathetic) that he misses her after only spending 1 day away from her!! Actually, it was "need to have a holiday", well that makes everything different....LOL. I didn't even realize I was singing the wrong lyrics for 35 years and I'm 43 now!! Haha. - Codi Preston D. - Submitted by: Codi Preston D.
