Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Little Richard

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!).

Little Richard's, "Long Tall Sally"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He saw Aunt Mary comin'
and he shut f***in' the hell up baby
The Real Lyrics:
He saw Aunt Mary comin'
and he jumped back in the alley Oh, baby
The Story: I first heard this song in the movie Predator when the mercenaries were in the helicopter in the beginning of the movie. I couldn't believe what I heard, but being an R-rated movie, it didn't surprise me. So I kept singing it that way and people were wondering 'Little Richard sang that?!?'. I decided to find out for sure, and sure enough, I found out I was wrong. I apologize to Little Richard. - Submitted by: Artemis
