Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bauhaus

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!).

Seven roses dead

Bela Lugosi's dead
The Story: I searched the record stores for this song. After buying the soundtrack for 'The Hunger', and discovering it was all classical music, it wasn't until this year that I read a review of the movie on a website and that led me to Bauhaus. Everyone swears that Bowie is the one singing when I played the tape for them. - Submitted by: Vivian
