Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The All-American Rejects

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!).

With the sad, sad look
That you're S.O.L.
The Real Lyrics:
With the sad, sad look
That you wear so well
The Story: S.O.L., if you don't know, is short for "s*** outta luck". I first heard it from my dad, but I'm assuming it's been around longer. - Submitted by: JeReMy
