Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Modjo

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!).

Modjo's, "Lady"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The Real Lyrics:
The Story: I was travelling by train from Szombathely to Budapest in Hungary when this song was peaking the charts in Europe. I was sitting in an almost deserted wagon with a group of about twenty year-old girls who happened to travel with a large boom box, playing one song, Modjo's 'Lady', over and over again. They didn't know the lyrics even after listening to the song a hundred times. They only shouted one word when the refrain started: 'LADIES!' I pondered on whether I should tell them that the word is 'lady', not 'ladies', but I didn't after seeing the amount of amusement the singing caused in the other passengers. - Submitted by: Adam Dobay
