Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Adam Ant

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!).

Adam Ant's, "Goody Two Shoes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's the heartbreak hooker.
The Real Lyrics:
With the heartbreak open.
The Story: 'Goody Two Shoes' is a slam phrase, and I thought Adam was slamming a slut girl. Adam is kind of imitating Elvis Presley in his singing in some funky sort of way anyway. - Submitted by: I Love Antmusic
Adam Ant's, "Goody Two Shoes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Something in your window, butthole.
The Real Lyrics:
Subtle innuendos follow.
The Story: My friend Scott was really into new wave music way before they started calling it "Alternative Rock/Pop" and just devoured anything of that ilk. He had note books of lyrics to songs he heard, and "Goody Two Shoes" was one of those songs. As I read the lyrics he had written down, I started laughing hysterically and told him there was no way those could be the lyrics. The misheard lyric above was a typical example, and as I leafed through the notebook I laughed even harder as I began to realize all of the lyrics he had written down for numerous songs were all wrong. Finally, he snatched the book from my hand and stormed off. He wouldn't talk to me for days afterward. I wish I had that notebook in my possession now as it would've been a valuble source of info for this site. - Submitted by: Psycho deBergerac
Adam Ant's, "Man Called Marco"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hello, I'm Marco.
Allow me to introduce
My five foot seven ;)
The Real Lyrics:
Hello, I'm Marco
Allow me to introduce
My Firebird Seven.
The Story: Horny thoughts ;P - Submitted by: Valentina Lugossi
Adam Ant's, "Puss 'n Boots"
The Misheard Lyrics:
They'd give her a million dollars
The Real Lyrics:
They'd give her the money and diamonds
The Story: I figured I was wrong from the get-go on this one, seeing as the song is set in Britain. Despite America's popularity in the '80s, chances are the royalty would pay Puss in pounds sterling, thus avoiding unnecessary exchange fees. - Submitted by: Vegan
Adam Ant's, "Whip in my Valise"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Who taught you to Cha Cha? Who taught cha?
The Real Lyrics:
Who taught you to torture? Who taught cha?
The Story: I first heard this song as a little kid and thought he was singing about dancing. Didn't understand why he mentioned whips, but didn't think to much about to be honest. Didn't find out till a decade later what the song was really about... - Submitted by: Deborah Brashear
