Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Delfonics

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!).

Platinum & Gold Collection album at
The Delfonics', "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Billy Joel did it, baby
The Real Lyrics:
Didn't I do it, baby?

The Delfonics', "La La Means I Love You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
La la la la la la la la lovely..... I love you
The Real Lyrics:
La la la la la la la la love means I love you
The Story: I was 14 or 15 when I first heard this song on a radio station in early to mid 1991. I thought I heard them singing "La la la la la la la lovely" instead of "La la la la la la la la love means". I never knew the actual lyrics till a few years down the road. - Submitted by: Codi Preston D.
