Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Brandi Carlile

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:
Kiss my ass when I sleep.
The Real Lyrics:
Kiss my eyes when I sleep.
The Story: I was in a Barnes & Noble bookstore when I heard this playing on the sound system. When this line came up I seemed to clearly hear "Kiss my ass", which really clashed with the rest of the song, so I thought right away I must have misheard it. When I got home I looked up the song on a lyrics site. It reports "Kiss my eyes" as the actual lyrics. A day or two later. I was in a restaurant when I heard the song playing again. These words sounded just as much like "Kiss my ass" as before! - Submitted by: Karen Smith
