Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Editors

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 Real Lyrics:
If a plane were to fall from the sky
How big a hole would it leave
In the surface of the earth?
The Story: I had an image of someone falling from Heaven and making a big person-shaped hole in the ground. Very cartoony and weird, but I kind of like my interpretation better. - Submitted by: Graham Surrey
