Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Black Eyed Peas

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 Eyed Peas', "Let's Get Retarded"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Let's get restarted in here
The Real Lyrics:
Let's get retarded in here
The Story: This was what could have actually happened in this song, when it made more sense to say "Let's get restarted" than "Let's get retarded" when it came to positive things. Later, upon single editing, it was re-styled as "Let's Get it Started". - Submitted by: Cody Finke
The Black Eyed Peas', "My Humps"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She's got me spinning
The Real Lyrics:
She's got me spending
The Story: I thought it was "spinning". - Submitted by: Cody Finke
The Black Eyed Peas', "Pump It"
The Misheard Lyrics:
BET, we're wrapping it
The Real Lyrics:
BEP, we're rapping it
The Story: BET (short for Black Entertainment Television) is a television network aimed at a black demographic (like the Black Eyed Peas, which the BEP initials are short for). - Submitted by: Cody Finke
