Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Guns-N-Roses

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!).

Appetite for Destruction album at
Guns-N-Roses', "Paradise City"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take me down to the very last city
Where the grass is green and the girls got titties
The Real Lyrics:
Take me down to the Paradise City
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
The Story: I was in college at the time this song came out. My roomate and I were cleaning the apartment with the stereo going and I started singing the misheard version of the lyric and my roomate nearly had a coronary from laughing so hard. He turned purple and was writhing on the floor the laughter was so painful. - Submitted by: Steve
