Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Dave Dudley

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:
I've got 10-4 gears and a Georgie Euler drive.
The Real Lyrics:
I've got 10 forward gears and a Georgia overdrive.
The Story: I first heard this song in 1991 at a family reunion. There are a lot of truckers in my family, and when they were singing along to an old record (my old record, to be exact), I was singing about 10-4 gears and a Georgie Euler drive. I was sternly reprimanded and I was given the correct lyrics, and peace resumed at the Kilgore-Reznick Family Reunion afterward. - Submitted by: Andria
