Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Black Crowes

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 Black Crowes', "My Morning Song"
The Misheard Lyrics:
March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a blueberry
Kiss me, baby, on an Easter Sunday date
Make my head blow away.

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me, baby, on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away.
The Story: I didn't know what the correct lyrics were for over two years until I was singing along to this song last night. My lyrics didn't seem to match up with those on the song so I looked them up on the internet. Whoops! - Submitted by: Katy
