Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Les Humphries Singers

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:

The Real Lyrics:
Mexico, Mexico
The Story: This song was one of my favorites when I was about 2-3 years old. My native language is Finnish and at that age I didn't speak any English (except numbers from 1 to 10, thanks and please) so lyrics never made any sense to me anyway. I was just singing along to my dad's records the way I thought they sounded like. But for some reason I still remember that I used to think that this song was about Pepsi-Cola. Pretty interesting, considering that I prefer Coca-Cola over Pepsi! - Submitted by: Minna
