Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Post Malone

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!).

Post Malone's, "Better Now"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Everything came second to the Pennzoil
The Real Lyrics:
Everything came second to the Benzo
The Story: Could have sworn it was about motor oil... - Submitted by: Cody Finke
Post Malone's, "Circles"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Run away,
From that Oliver Wavell,
Run away, run away, run away
The Real Lyrics:
Run away,
But we're running in circles,
Run away, run away, run away
The Story: The song came out around the same time when I developed a crush on someone with that name, but the sad thing is that I relate to that song so much about him, the "run away" part touched a nerve in me and had me in tears when I hear it because he's so friendly and shouldn't be run away from, but now I can't unhear that line and I feel like I'm running in circles too, I hope to get to know him better 1 day. - Submitted by: A-Lean
Post Malone's, "Psycho"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I may be going psycho, my mama feel like Michael
The Real Lyrics:
My AP going psycho, li'l mama bad like Michael
The Story: I was singing along to this song with my friend while we were listening to the radio, and when I sang the misheard lyric, my friend started roaring with laughter! I was like, "What?" and she goes, "Just look up the lyrics". So I did, and I realized with embarrassment that I had the words wrong! And then I had to look up what an AP was...but the original lyrics do make a lot more sense! - Submitted by: Ariana Grande mocha swirl
Post Malone's, "Take What You Want"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Cutie pie
The Real Lyrics:
Give her that pipe
The Story: The heavily-processed, autotuned vocals lent well to misinterpretation. I swore I mistook the lyric back when I first heard this single. - Submitted by: LPG-Unit
