Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Maclean And Maclean

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!).

Maclean And Maclean's, "Pubic Hair"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I was eating me a burger
In a little green seas bone grave.
The Real Lyrics:
I was eating me a burger
In a little greasy spoon cafe.
The Story: My brother Gerry Barrault is a tradesman and is always singing as he works. For weeks he'd been making the guys at work laugh with this oldie, but goodie. He came home and mentioned that his co-workers requested this song at least once a day. I got him to sing it for me, and these were the words that he sang. I guess years of using noisy equipment damaged his hearing! - Submitted by: Alison Kerchak
