Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Al Martino

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
Fire on the way when I love you and want you forever.
The Real Lyrics:
Why run away when I love you and want you forever?
The Story: I have always liked this song, which I consider a most underrated song by an underrated artist. It has both English and Italian lyrics. I always thought the English lyrics were sung quite clearly and thought there was no mistaking about my understanding of them. But I always wished I could learn the Italian lyrics as well. I sought in vain to find printed lyrics for the song. Then when the internet came along, I looked for the lyrics thereon, with no success for a long time. Recently I finally found the lyrics posted on a site. Surprise -there turned out to be a line in English that I hadn't understood correctly. - Submitted by: Alison Runyon
