Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kinks

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!).

Kinks', "Lola"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm a man, I'm a man and so is Lola.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm glad I'm a man, and so is Lola.
The Story: For years, I thought Lola was a man. The song was a similar story to Aerosmith's 'Dude Looks Like a Lady'. - Submitted by: Q
Kinks', "Lola"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm glad I'm a man and so is Lola
The Real Lyrics:
In bed I'm a man and so is Lola
The Story: It's not particularly funny, but this seems to be an ancient controversy; I always thought I heard 'bed' (as opposed to the printed lyrics), & it was confirmed in a series of graffiti exchanges in a stall on the campus of uc Berkeley c. 1975. Hardly conclusive, I know . . . - Submitted by: Daniel
