Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Michaal Jackson

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!).

Michaal Jackson's, "Billie Jean"
The Misheard Lyrics:
But the chairlift's not mine son
She says I am the one
Chairlift's not mine son.
The Real Lyrics:
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son.
The Story: After becoming convinced he was singing that the chairlift was not his, it was decided between myself and some friends the song is really about a man being sued by a ex lover. In an attempt to save some of his belongings, he decides to give his ski resort to his son, only the chairlift already belongs to the woman suing him, Billie Jean. So he is informing his son of this fact by song, hence the chairlift's not mine son. - Submitted by: Richard
