Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Archies

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
I just can't believe the love I get for loving you
(I just can't believe it's true).
The Real Lyrics:
I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you
(I just can't believe it's true).
The Story: I thought I pretty much knew this song. Then I went to an exercise class where it was among the songs playing on the sound system. When it came to the first line above, all I could hear of it was as the misheard version I've cited. I was baffled as to what the real lyrics to that line were. So I tried to remember my mishearing until I got home and could a lyrics site. When I found the real lyrics of that line, They sort or kind of "rang a bell". - Submitted by: Corinne Auterlehr
