Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sara Bareilles

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!).

Sara Bareilles', "Armor"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You make me cha-cha cha-cha cha harder
The Real Lyrics:
You make me try try try try try harder
The Story: Rumor has it, rock lyrics use too much repetition these days. But I Know I Know I Know I Know I Know this is not a new trend. - Submitted by: Jeffrey Kasten
Sara Bareilles', "King of Anything"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Edward Albee!
The Real Lyrics:
You are not me
The Story: The first few times I listened to this song it was on the radio in the car and wasn't listening very closely. When I was quietly murmuring the song to myself later, I realized how absurd what I was saying, and wondered why Sara Bareilles had written a critical song about a celebrated playwright in his eighties. - Submitted by: Art Ross
