Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Blue Swede

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 Swede's, "Hooked On A Feeling"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Gotya, ga who, ga who
The Real Lyrics:
Hooga, hooga, hooga chaka.
The Story: My wife of 7 years is convinced that she knows that correct lyrics. I have offered to pay for a hearing exam, but she refuses. I bought her the CD to prove that I was right. She is still in denial. Thanks for helping me clear this one up. - Submitted by: Dan Lewitt
Blue Swede's, "Hooked on a Feeling"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Kacha kahoo, kahoo, kahoo
The Real Lyrics:
Ooga, Chaka, ooga, ooga
The Story: This comes from your mind synching up with the wrong start point of the sequence, and changing the whole order of the sequence. Other songs can do this too. It's like dancing and starting with the second step instead of the first, and using the second step as the beginning over and over. - Submitted by: Old Comedywriter
