Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Chordettes

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!).

Chordettes - Lollipop: 18 Greatest Hits album at
The Chordettes', "Lollipop"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Her kids are sweeter than an apple pie
The Real Lyrics:
Her kiss is sweeter than an apple pie
The Story: I guess having to do with a song that sounds like it's for kids, it kind of makes sense to hear it that way. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
The Chordettes', "Lollipop"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Huckleberry, cherry, or lime
The Real Lyrics:
Huckleberry, chimry, or lime
The Story: I was looking up the lyrics because I want to do this song for a talent show. I looked it up and multiple resources said that it was chimry not cherry. I "googled" What is a chimry. Some people thought it was a fruit others said it wasn't. One person thought it was a guava from a fruit bat or something! So I'm just sticking to a lollipop flavor! - Submitted by: Katie
