Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Elton John and Kiki Dee

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!).

Elton John and Kiki Dee's, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You take the wet off of me.
The Real Lyrics:
You take the weight off of me.
The Story: When I thought it was "You take the wet off of me" I couldn't help but think that my T-shirt was soaked and that "take the wet off of me" meant to dry my T-shirt immediately but it's impossible to dry a T-shirt that fast. - Submitted by: Darlene

But when I was down, I was your clown
