Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Neon Trees

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!).

Neon Trees', "Animal"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, oh take a bite of my heart tonight

Oh, oh say goodbye to my heart tonight
The Story: The song is called "Animals," so eating his heart didn't seem too far-fetched! - Submitted by: Alex
Neon Trees', "Everybody Talks"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I think you're a cheap shit.
The Real Lyrics:
I could hear the chit chat.
The Story: For the longest time, I was baffled that this song could legally be played on the radio. Then I read the lyrics on Pandora, and I was like, "oh." - Submitted by: Dylan
Neon Trees', "Everybody Talks"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It started with the whisper,
And that was with my keister.
Imagining my lips hurt,
I could be the chit-chat.
The Real Lyrics:
It started with a whisper
And that was when I kissed her.
And then she made my lips hurt
I can hear the chit-chat
The Story: Looked up the lyrics because the way I heard it never made any sense. - Submitted by: Daniel Sanchez
