Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Marque

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!).

Marque's, "One To Make Her Happy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Daisy and her boyfriends
Livin' in a house
Sharence is the butler.
The Real Lyrics:
Daisy and her boyfriends
Livin' in a house
Sharin' just the good life.
The Story: At first, I thought the 3rd line was "Sharence is the bulldog" but I decided that this would be too strange. Then I listened again to the song and heard "butler". I got following picture: a very rich lady (Daisy) lived in her very big house. She had many many boyfriends but "she was never happy..." and that she needs "one to make her happy". I thought: "Maybe she was fed up with all the rich boys who can't make her happy. And the mention of the butler means that HE was the one who could make her happy........" - Submitted by: Laura
