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:
Wearing high-heeled shoes
Getting love from the Jews
Four bad-a** chicks from the Moulin Rouge.
The Real Lyrics:
Wearing high-heeled shoes
Getting love from the dudes
Four bad-a** chicks from the Moulin Rouge.
The Story: This actually made sense to me: France was a very anti-Semitic country in the 19th and early 20th century, with everyone complaining about the rich capitalist Jews. But the prostitutes weren't prejudiced, they'd sleep with anyone as long as he was rich. Still, I had my doubts about whether this was actually what they were singing, so I finally looked it up. But I still like my version better! - Submitted by: Margaret W
