Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Donnas

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 Misheard Lyrics:
On the further turf of yo-yo
The Real Lyrics:
On the floors of topio
The Story: My acquaintence with this song came from hearing it play during the end credits of the movie "Mean Girls". I kept asking myself, 'What do they mean 'On the further turf of yo-yo?' I must have heard it several times, so psyched up from seeing the movie, that I didn't think hey, that's a misheard lyric -- something for! When I finally started thinking of it as a misheard lyric, I looked for a lyric site giving the real lyrics. It wasn't easy, but I finally found one. So, here it is, as a misheard lyrics entry. - Submitted by: Sheila Evans
