Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Lulu

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 Story: This was heard on a radio phone-in competition on Gold radio. Listeners were asked to guess the song from a short snippet. A listener phoned in to say "Is it 'The Book That I Wrote' by Lulu?" The DJ asked her to repeat it, which she did. She genuinely thought that was the title! - Submitted by: Peter
