Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> David Soul

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!).

David Soul's, "Don't Give Up On Us"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't get up on a silo.
The Real Lyrics:
Don't give up on us I know.
The Story: Living in a small Central Illinois farm town, I could not understand why David Soul's girlfriend wanted to escape him on the top of a grain silo. It turns out there is no silo reference in the song. My mistake. - Submitted by: Scott Britton
David Soul's, "Don't Give Up on Us"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I know it would' a last one bye
The Real Lyrics:
I know we put a last one by
The Story: I never heard that expression (put a last one by) so this is exactly what it sounds like. After a few years I forget the actual lyric and still mishear it my way.3 - Submitted by: Cinci
