Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Jacksons

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 Jacksons', "2300 Jackson Street"
The Misheard Lyrics:
2300 crackson speed
Always gone
The Real Lyrics:
2300 Jackson Street
Always home
The Story: I have a friend who was addicted to crack and speed. When I heard the song in his house, I told him: 'Crazy, now they're singin' a song about you!' My friend was amazed and looked at me. He asked me why I said it. When I sang the lyrics, he slapped my face. Now he's clean. I'll never forget his sulky face! - Submitted by: Tina

Enjoy your sap
The Real Lyrics:
Enjoy yourself!
The Story: My sister and I were listening to this song, and I heard her singing something funny. I turned off the music to ask her what she was singing and she said "enjoy your sap!" and I asked "what do you mean by sap?" and she said "you know, like maple syrup!" - Submitted by: Lisa
