Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Neneh Cherry

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:
Yo money man, come bring my love
It's sweetness that I'm thinking of
We always hang at the buffalo stands.

No money man, can win my love
It's sweetness that I'm thinking of
We always hang in a buffalo stance.
The Story: I was calling my friend a gigolo, then started singing my version of the song not knowing how wrong I was. He never stopped making fun of me ever since. - Submitted by: Emmy C
