Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Crystals

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 Crystals', "Then He Kissed Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And Danny kissed me.
The Real Lyrics:
And then he kissed me.
The Story: When I started out as a Club DJ, a lady asked me to play 'And Danny kissed me. I didn't know of such a track, but she insisted I'd played it on an Oldies Night some few nights before. Eventually, after exhausting any track with Dan Danny or Daniel in the lyrics, I worked out that she meant 'And Then He Kissed Me'-too late, for she'd gone home. - Submitted by: John Bennett
The Crystals', "Then He Kissed Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
When we danced he held me tight
And when he walks he holds a knife
The Real Lyrics:
When we danced he held me tight
And when he walked me home that night
The Story: I was singing it out loud during a bad movie at the Fortway Theatre; I and my friends used to sing girl-group songs during awful horror-night movies... and an older girl stopped the proceedings and corrected me. - Submitted by: Jimmy
