Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bright Eyes

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:
Sorry, just one chair.
I'll take one again, get lucky.
The Real Lyrics:
Sorry, just one cherry.
I'll play again, get lucky.
The Story: When he's singing this part, his voice gets very emotional and shaky, like he's trying not to laugh at the irony of it all; it's kind of hard to hear what he's saying if you're not paying close attention. For some reason, I kept getting the image of Conor molesting a chair whenever I heard this lyric. But then again, I'm an idiot. - Submitted by: Anna
