Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Monster Magnet

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:
Now old Ben-laden says my name.
The Real Lyrics:
Now open wide and say my name.
The Story: I had been singing along with this song, kind of phonetically for a long time. That one line I didn't understand, so 'Now old Ben-laden says my name' is what I was singing, not even knowing who or what that was at the time. Hadn't heard the song in a long time, and I shocked myself when I sang that line. I thought, 'This cannot be right!' So I looked up the lyrics and was embarrassed with myself, so of course, I decided to share with everyone my stupidity! - Submitted by: Jonnie
