Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Eydie Gorme

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!).

Eydie Gorme's, "Blame It On The Bossa Nova"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I was at a dance, when he cut my eye.
The Real Lyrics:
I was at a dance, when he caught my eye.
The Story: This was one of the few records around the house when I was a child. When I listened to it, I always wondered why she stayed at the dance when she had cut her eye. I thought she should find a doctor, not dance with the guy who had cut her eye. - Submitted by: James R. Nunley
Eydie Gorme's, "Blame It on the Bossa Nova"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Blame it all on Casanova
The Real Lyrics:
Blame it on the bossa nova
The Story: I was 13. I'd never heard of the bossa nova, but I had heard of Casanova. The brain tries to make sense of what it hears somehow. - Submitted by: Adrian Carter
