Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Keith Richards

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!).

Suck my dick
The Real Lyrics:
Shucks, my dear
The Story: For years and years and years I truly thought those were the lyrics. I also thought that was too raunchy for FM radio but I heard this song there. Not even in San Francisco where radio stations are diverse and you could hear about any music you'd like to would they play songs with X-rated language like that.They wouldn't play 2 Live Cru so I was surprised to 'hear' a song with those words on the air in the Midwest. Or so I thought. - Submitted by: Get It Straight In '88
