Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Tal Bachman

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!).

Tal Bachman's, "She's So High"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's alright. You're high above me.
The Real Lyrics:
She's so high. High above me.
The Story: I heard it in the doctor's office two years ago, and I recognized the song back in the late '90s early '00s, yet I didn't know what he was saying. So, I thought it was "It's alright". It took me two months to figure out even what the song was called, and to figure out I got the lyrics wrong. - Submitted by: Matt
