Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Jem

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!).

Jem's, "Wish I"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The Real Lyrics:
Wish I
The Story: At first, I thought she was singing 'pressure'. Then the radio DJ announced the title. When he announced 'Wish I', I misheard him as saying 'Fisheye'. Before I got around to submitting to this very site that the lyric 'Fisheye' was nonsensical, I then found out she was really saying 'Wish I' after all. - Submitted by: K.y.l.e

The Real Lyrics:
