Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Blue Mink

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!).

Blue Mink's, "Melting Pot"
The Misheard Lyrics:
What we need is a great big mountain top
The Real Lyrics:
What we need is a great big melting pot
The Story: This lyric was not misheard by me but was submitted to a radio show called 'The Coodabeen Champions' (could have been champions). This inspired them to create a segment called 'Mountain Tops' and invite listeners to submit their own 'mountain tops' misheard lyrics. The show aired for many years in Australia. - Submitted by: Tim Herlihy
