Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Extreme

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!).

Extreme's, "Get The Funk Out"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If you don't like what you see here get the f*ck out!
We won't try to forsee you get the f*ck out!
The Real Lyrics:
If you don't like what you see here get the funk out!
We won't try to force feed you get the funk out!
The Story: Extreme is another one of those bands that you don't quite know what they're singing until you really pay attention to the lyrics. You can't ever tell what a band is singing until you really pay attention to the lyrics and I just didn't pay attention to it until my dear sweet mother heard what I was singing. I got a verbal repremand for it but I still like the song no matter how it's sung! - Submitted by: Celeste Keenan

Extreme's, "More Than Words"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Satan I love you is not the words I want to hear from you.

Extreme's, "More than words"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Not desepa
The Real Lyrics:
Not to say but
The Story: I felt incredibly mortified, after I taught my friend the lyrics to 'More than Words'. We loved harmonizing songs and since we didn't have the cd, I decided to write down all the words by listening to the tape over and over again. I got stuck, I admit, on this particular verse.. we laughed hours on end because I, had convinced her 'not to say but' was some special word in latin.. 'desepa'.. is there even such a word?! - Submitted by: Christine
