Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Meredith Brooks

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!).

Meredith Brooks', "Bitch"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm a bitch, I'm a luder I'm a child,
I'm a murderer I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
The Real Lyrics:
I'm a bitch, I'm a lover I'm a child,
I'm a mother I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
The Story: I listened to this song very often and I didn't get it that the lyrics i was frequently singing were wrong. I'm German, maybe that's the reason. When i finally downloaded the original lyrics of the song and read that it was all nonsense what i sung, my first thought was: 'Oh!' - Submitted by: Felix Motzko

The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm a sinner on The Saint
I do not feel a shit
The Real Lyrics:
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
The Story: When I first heard the song, despite its profane title, I thought she said "I'm a sinner on The Saint" in reference to the British series, since a movie adaptation of it was released shortly before the song came out. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
