Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Aaliyah

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!).

Aaliyah's, "Age Ain't Nothing But A Number"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Age ain't nothin' but a number
But a noun ain't nothing but a thang.
The Real Lyrics:
Age ain't nothin' but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thang.
The Story: My best friend actually thought these were the lyrics up until recently. It made so much sense though, because a noun is really a thing. An adolescent could really think these lyrics were correct. Darn grammar classes. - Submitted by: Keisha
Aaliyah's, "Are You That Somebody?"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll be waiting there with my twat
The Real Lyrics:
I'll be waiting there with my trench
The Story: I heard the song on the radio and thought they blocked out the word "twat". Then I looked up the real lyrics and found that the word hadn't been there in the first place. Buzz kill. - Submitted by: Amanda
Aaliyah's, "Are You That Somebody"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll be waiting there with my Twix, my notes, my hat just so I'm low-key
The Real Lyrics:
I'll be waiting there with my trench, my Lugz, my hat just so I'm low-key
The Story: I'm disappointed now that I've learned the correct lyrics. Studying and having a snack in the park seems a lot more low-key than loitering in a trenchcoat and boots. - Submitted by: Rob of Extraordinary Magnitude
Aaliyah's, "Come Over"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I just touched down, quarter after 2, like 1:02.
The Real Lyrics:
I just touched down, a quarter after 2, flight 1-0-2.
The Story: I was always confused on why it wasn't corrected like she does know that a quarter after means fifteen minutes after the hour 🤣 Makes more sense now.3AL - Submitted by: Rae
Aaliyah's, "More Than A Woman"
The Misheard Lyrics:
More than a llama
More than a llama.
The Real Lyrics:
More then a lover
More than a woman.
The Story: I was at my friends house and we were listening to this song, I asked, 'Why is she singing about a llama?' Then she told me what she was saying. It's an inside joke now. - Submitted by: Lindz
Aaliyah's, "Try Again"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Or play a roll
The Real Lyrics:
Or play a role
The Story: I thought it was "roll" but it was really referring to celebrities. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
