Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Fleetwoods

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 Fleetwoods', "Mr. Blue"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Call me Mr. Blue, call me Mr.Blue. Hi Mr. Blue
The Real Lyrics:
Call me Mr. Blue, call me Mr. Blue. I'm Mr. Blue
The Story: The male lead did the 'call me' part and then the female backup duo of thegroup very friendly like and cooperatively sounding then chimed in with what sounded to my 8 year old ears to be 'Hi Mr. Blue'. Wish my parents didn't tell me what the ladies really sang. Hi Mr. Blue sounds better. I think it sold me the record in fact. - Submitted by: Bob Alinkofsky
The Fleetwoods', "Mr. Blue"
The Misheard Lyrics:
My Kim, I am doubtful that your love is true.
The Real Lyrics:
Like him, I am doubtful that your love is true.
The Story: For a long time, I thought the words were 'My Kim'. I wondered if Kim could be member of the group or a one-time love of a member. Later I just happened to be looking at the lyrics on a lyrics site and discovered there is no Kim in this song. - Submitted by: Olga Ruiz
