Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Scorpions

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!).

Scorpions', "Love At First Sting"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Love in Brazil
The Real Lyrics:
Love at first sting
The Story: A friend of mine, a native English speaker (I'm not) swore that the singer was saying 'Love in Brazil', instead of 'Love at first sting', until I made him realise he was wrong. He hates being wrong, whatever the field, and to this day, I still remind him that 'mishearing' every now and then and when I do, he feels he needs to cover my voice by screaming 'Love in Braziiiiiiiiiil'. That way, he still feels he's right! - Submitted by: Pierre Nicolay
