Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Eternal

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!).

Eternal's, "Dont let go"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't you wanna be Old and frail?
The Real Lyrics:
Don't you wanna be more than friends?
The Story: I actually overheard my friend singing this to Eternal's song Dont Let Go. I asked her to repeat what she had just sung and she said 'dont you wanna be, old and frail'. I told her what the real lyrics said (through my hysterical laughter) and she said she always wondered what that line meant. I mean who wants to be Old and Frail? It still makes me laugh to this day!!! - Submitted by: Michelle
