Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Brenton Wood

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!).

Brenton Wood's, "Gimme Little Sign"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Gimme a little slander
The Real Lyrics:
Gimme a little sign girl
The Story: I just never knew what the title of this song was, especially with only hearing it because my older sister would listen to the 60s music. As I got older and continued to listen to the "Oldies", I never bothered to find out the title until I was listening to Sirius '60s Gold', about a year ago, and decided to see what year it came out. There on my tablet screen was the title "Gimmie Little SIGN"! Boy, did I feel stupid! 😄 - Submitted by: Sandy Staruk
