Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Nicole Wray

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!).

Nicole Wray's, "If I Was Your Girlfriend"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If I was your girlfriend, imagine what you could be now
I want to think what you thought
Especially as my body's hot - made of retard.
The Real Lyrics:
If I was your girlfriend, imagine what you could be now
I wanna take my clothes off
'Cause you've got my body hot, ready to freak now.
The Story: I thought Nicole was trying to inject some metaphorical profundity in her lyrics, albeit to some slight grammatical confusion, political incorrectness and omission of any sense whatsoever. When I heard the real lyrics, I was surprised even more because the lines come out of the blue and have nothing to do with the song anyway. I still think what I heard is better. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
