Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> McFly

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!).

5 Colours in Her Hair, Pt. 2 album at
McFly's, "All About You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He's on eBay.
The Real Lyrics:
It's all about you.
The Story: My friend John was browsing eBay with the radio on, and this song came on, and I said 'This song is relevant, isn't it?' He said 'In what way is it relevant?' And I said 'Well, you are on eBay, aren't you?' And he said 'What has that got to do with this song?' And I said that it keeps saying he's on eBay!' And he said, 'It don't say that lyric throughout the entire song!' And then I sung it to him, and he laughed, and said that they were saying 'It's all about you'. I didn't believe him, and then they announced the song title, and he said 'See! Told you!' He keeps making fun of me, and whenever I'm around and this song comes on, he says 'Oh look! It's the eBay song!' and that's what I know it as now, but I still think that might be what they're saying, even though the title is 'All About You'. It really does sound like it. - Submitted by: Bruckner
McFly's, "All About You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
This song's about you!
The Real Lyrics:
It's all about you!
The Story: I knew this single was for Comic Relief and I wanted to give some donations. So I went into hmv and asked 'Have you got that comic Relieif single that goes: This song's about you, this song's about you!' The lady started laughing at me and I hadn't got a clue why. Then I saw the cd case that said 'All About You' on it and realised my mistake. - Submitted by: Becky
Mcfly's, "Mr Brightside"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Turning sex into a scene
The Real Lyrics:
Turning saints into the sea
The Story: I always thought this song was about a girl named Chelsea, whoops. - Submitted by: KingCow336
