Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Band Aid 20

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!).

Band Aid 20's, "Do They Know It's Christmas"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You ain't gotta feel guilt, Joss Stone, yes
Give a little help to the helpless
The Real Lyrics:
You ain't gotta feel guilt just selfless
Give a little help to the helpless
The Story: This was the 2004 version of Do They Know It's Christmas sang by various artists to mark the 20th anniversary of the release of the original version and to raise funds in Sudan. I thought that Dizzee Rascal (who delivered these particular lines) was name-checking Joss Stone, another artist who appeared on this recording. I was wondering why he was singling her out until I realised a couple of years later that I had totally misheard the lyric! - Submitted by: Jacynthia Maries
