Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bad Meets Evil featuring Bruno Mars

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:
This one's for you and me, living out of trees
The Real Lyrics:
This one's for you and me, living out our dreams
The Story: For months I thought this was the dumbest song ever written, I mean, duh, people don't live out of trees, maybe he's singing about monkeys... I couldn't make sense of it, so I decided it was a metaphor for being so blissfully in love with eachother that you don't need material objects, like you know, shelter. The lighters were perhaps stars in the sky (which you have a lot of time to stare at if you're living in a tree). Then a few days ago I was driving and this some came on and I was like "Oh wait, he said "dreams" not "trees". I can't stop laughing at my own stupidity. - Submitted by: Timi Zhuo
