Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bayside

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:
No matter what you wear, I'll hate it.
The Real Lyrics:
And now you're walking away, you're not 18 anymore.
The Story: We came back from a fishing trip one night. It was about 4 in the morning, and we were listening to this song. When that verse came, she says, "I think I'm hearing things. Did he just say 'No matter what you wear, I'll hate it?'" I took the CD back home and heard the same thing. I replied, "Well darn, that's pretty harsh." Once I found out the real lyrics, I felt pretty stupid. - Submitted by: Erica
