Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> English Beat

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!).

English Beat's, "Mirror in the Bathroom"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Litter in the bathroom
The Real Lyrics:
Mirror in the bathroom
The Story: I was wondering why on earth anyone would make a song about litter in the bathroom 😂 - Submitted by: jourenkyaku
English Beat's, "Mirror in the Bathroom"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Meet her in the bathroom, please don't scream...
The Real Lyrics:
Mirror in the bathroom, please talk free.
The Story: I thought this song was a bit darker than what it actually was. I felt his action of trapping her in the bathroom was somewhat ameliorated by the fact that he invited her to a restaurant rather than doing anything nasty. - Submitted by: Dave
