Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kacey Musgraves

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!).

Kacey Musgraves', "Velvet Elvis"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Elvis, Elvis, date me
The Real Lyrics:
Velvet Elvis, baby
The Story: This song plays every day at my workplace, and I thought it was really weird to hear this lady talk about dating Elvis. I knew that I was probably hearing it wrong, so I spent a long time searching for the song name. I didn't expect Elvis's name to be the actual lyric, but I now realize it was an intentional metaphorical allusion. It took me days to find the actual song since I kept searching for the incorrect lyrics, but I found it by searching for the rhyming lyric "jealous," which I knew was in the song. - Submitted by: Madison Clark
