Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Sons Of The Pioneers

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!).

Sons Of The Pioneers', "Ghost Riders In The Sky"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Their brands were still on fire and their bosom made of steel.
The Real Lyrics:
Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel.
The Story: I recorded this song on a cassette tape that I played in my car during a trip with my father and brother. I told them I thought it odd that the word 'bosom' was used. My brother told me the word was 'hooves' and laughed heartily at me to my embarrassment. - Submitted by: Randy P.
Sons of the Pioneers', "Maverick"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Living in Jackson's heels
The Real Lyrics:
Living on jacks and queens
