Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lloyd Price

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!).

Lloyd Price's, "Stagger Lee"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I was standing on the corner
When I heard my bulldog fart.
The Real Lyrics:
I was standing on the corner
When I heard my bulldog bark.
The Story: I sing and play in a corporate party band and this is one of my favorite songs. I enjoy doing as a cover tune with my band mates from the 1950's era. I was listening to this song one night and right when it got to that line. I fell out of my chair and nearly died laughing so hard. I thought Lloyd Price was singing about his bulldog breaking wind instead of barking at the two men gambling in the dark. I swear, I played it over and over and that's what it sounded like to me. I really hope our band leader doesn't sing this misheard lyric onstage because if he does, we're in big trouble. I think I must have ate too much refried beans while listening to that lyric. - Submitted by: Jen
