Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Joe Jeffrey Group

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 Joe Jeffrey Group's, "My Pledge of Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Mountain ledge of love
The Real Lyrics:
My pledge of love
The Story: I first heard this song when I was eight years old, three years after the song had come out (it was a hit in the late summer of 1969). I was listening to wgar-am (now defunct) on a Sunday night (a radio program called Chronicles), and I mentioned to my older brother Mike that I heard the song 'Mountain Ledge of Love' by the Joe Jeffrey group. He grimaced, laughed, and told me the correct title, 'My Pledge of Love'. To make it even more embarrassing, he gave me grief for not knowing that they came from right here in Cleveland! - Submitted by: Mark Speck
