Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Archies

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!).

Archies - Greatest Hits album at
Archies', "Sugar, Sugar"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Ah, honey, honey
You are my cannibal
And you've got me watching you
Meshuggah, sugar
You are my cannibal
And you've got me watching you.
The Real Lyrics:
Ah sugar
Ah, honey, honey
You are my candy girl
And you've got me wanting you
Ah, sugar, sugar
You are my candy girl
And you've got me wanting you.
The Story: I am not Jewish, but as a boy I knew thought that was what it said. Later in life, I found out 'meshuggah' was Yiddish for 'crazy.' 'You are my cannibal' seemed silly, but it made as much sense to a 5 year old as 'meshuggah.' - Submitted by: Joe Ely Carrales
