Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Evan Rachel Wood

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!).

Evan Rachel Wood's, "Christmas Isn't Christmas Without You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If I had one wish, it would be your Christmas tree.
The Real Lyrics:
If I had one wish, it would be your Christmas kiss.
The Story: I had trouble understanding the lyrics to this song. And apparently, so do those who make up lyrics sites. I checked lyrics sites for this and found that the majority of them show this line as "If I had one wish, it would be more Christmas". The first thing to clue me to the wrongness of that is that she clearly sings another word in that line, after "Christmas". Then I listened to the whole song while reading one of those lyrics sites, and found other lines where the lyrics that they cite clearly leave off one or even two words before she finishes the line. The line that I've quoted above is sung twice in the song, once early and once later. I eventually noticed that the first time is when she clearly sounds like she says "Christmas tree". The second time makes it easier to guess that she just might be saying "Christmas kiss". So I again searched that line by Google, assuming "kiss" might be right, and found two sites that show the lyrics that way. Furthermore I found that those two also finish those other lines cut short on those several other sites. So that made me confident that I had found the correct lyrics at last on those two sites. - Submitted by: Amber Wayland
