Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> 5th Dimension

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.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

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!).

5th Dimension's, "Stoned Soul Picnic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hurry down to a stone cold picnic
The Real Lyrics:
Hurry down to a stoned soul picnic
The Story: 'Stone cold picnic' is a term that Steve Austin the wrestler has been using. Although the band name 5th dimension implies that the song's writer, Laura Nyro, could very well be clairvoyant, it is unlikely that she predicted Mr. Austin's catch phrase 30+ years in advance. - Submitted by: Hugo
