Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kate Ceberano

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!).

19 Days in New York album at
Kate Ceberano's, "Bedroom Eyes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Petrol eyes
Spectral eyes
The Real Lyrics:
Bedroom eyes
The Story: My father used to play this in the car every time we visited. For years, I thought it was 'petrol eyes'. Then one day, my sister paid me out, telling me, 'Errrr it's spectral eyes'. So for a few more years, I thought that's what it was!! It was only this year that I heard the song again and realized that the chorus matched the title. So the saga was over; but hey, I was young, okay!! :p - Submitted by: Nick
