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!).

Let it go, let it go, and I'll rise like the great Gondor!
Let it go, let it go, and I'll rise like the break of dawn!
The Story: My 6 year old daughter kept singing the song, but she kept saying this and I asked her what is the great Gondor? (I thought it was something in the movie). She said "I don't know, what is it?" That's when I realized she likely had the lyric wrong and we should look it up. Wherever I hear it now I think of the great Gondor, whatever it might be. - Submitted by: Chris
Met a hoe, Met a hoe. Hat, old and ass men and whore
Let it go, Let it go. Can't hold it back anymore
The Story: Ok, I already know the lyrics and I'm a kid. Now that is racist to put ass and whore in a Disney song and a PG movie. Somehow that is what I heard but then I saw the movie it was in, Frozen and I heard Let it go let it go can't hold it back any more - Submitted by: William
I'm playing like the queen of storks.
I'm slaying like the queen of swords.
The Story: While I was eating at Taco Bell, I heard this playing on their sound system. The best I could make out that line was "I'm playing like the queen of storks". I wondered what that might mean. There's a fable about storks bringing babies and I thought there might be some connection with that. Like "queen of storks" might be an epithet for some fertility goddess or something, I thought. When I got home I looked up the real lyrics, and found that a thoroughly more violent metaphor is employed here -- gee whiz! - Submitted by: Karen Smith
