Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Taking Back Sunday

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!).

Taking Back Sunday's, "There's No 'I' in Team"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I've never done it with the style and grace you have
When I made love to plants
Based on these mistakes.
The Real Lyrics:
I've never done it with the style and grace you have
But I've made long term plans
Based on these mistakes.
The Story: My friends and I were driving one night. One friend asked me to put Taking Back Sunday on, because there was this one really funny song that says, 'When I made love to plants'. When you listen to the song, it sounds just like that. - Submitted by: Kristen
Taking Back Sunday's, "Timberwolves At New Jersey"
The Misheard Lyrics:
With the girl on your arm and your hard on, you sleaze!
The Real Lyrics:
With the girl on your arm and your heart on your sleeve!
The Story: I first heard this song when I borrowed the cd from my friend. A couple days later, we were hanging out and listening to the cd and sang 'With the girl on your arm and your hard on, you sleaze!' My friend just about p***ed himself. Then we went online to settle the dispute once and for all. I was wrong--again. - Submitted by: AJ
