Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> John Fred & His Playboy Band

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!).

John Fred & His Playboy Band's, "Judy In Disguise"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Judy in the sky, with a**-kiss.
The Real Lyrics:
Judy in disguise, with glasses.
The Story: When I first heard this, when it was fairly new, I thought it definitely sounded like the misheard version above. But I was pretty sure I was hearing it wrong, since I heard it back then only on the radio, and was pretty sure that they wouldn't have played such lyrics on the air back then. It wasn't long until I heard someone singing the 'disguise' part clearly, and figured out that that much seemed correct. But it wasn't until the last decade or so that I saw the title in print as 'Judy In Disguise (With Glasses)', before which I never came close to guessing the real words to the 'with glasses' part. - Submitted by: Miranda Turner
