Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Matthew Good Band

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 Misheard Lyrics:
Were you dead way before tonight?
Though zits lack
We'll stay awhile
A secret most of this liberal life
Though zits lack
We'll buy a mile
The Real Lyrics:
Were you dead way before tonight?
Throw it back
And stay awhile
I've seen red most of this little life
Throw it back
We'll die awhile
The Story: I was in the mosh pit at a Matthew Good Band concert, and singing my heart out to the chorus of the song, when a crowd surfer going over my head informed me I was singing the wrong lyrics. I barely heard him, but I got the message ;-) - Submitted by: Kat O.
