Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Kylie Minogue

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
The rebels stomp at midnight.
The Real Lyrics:
There ain't no stopping my now.
The Story: I was trying to figure out what rebels stomping at midnight had to do with the rest of the song, so I looked up the lyrics online, only to learn that it wasn't what Kylie was singing at all. I even played the line for my son, and he heard something closer to what I heard. - Submitted by: RunAndWrite
