Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Biz Markie

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!).

Biz Markie - Greatest Hits album at
Biz Markie's, "Vapors"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He used to try to talk to this girl named Friend.
The Real Lyrics:
He used to try to talk to this girl named Fran.
The Story: I know Vapors came out before Biz Markie's hit song Just a Friend. I figured Vapors was the precursor to Just a Friend. I thought the guy Biz Markie refers to as "he" might have considered that girl just a friend and gave her the nickname "Friend" in order to show that she's not his girlfriend. It turns out that the girl's name is Fran. - Submitted by: Devin
