Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Living End

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!).

From Here on in album at
The Living End's, "Raise the Alarm"
The Misheard Lyrics:
With the lovin', the hatin'
The constipating
The Real Lyrics:
With the lovin', the hatin'
The constant debating
The Story: The song came on the radio in the car and the kids said, "this is the constipated song" and sang it to me. Apparently, it had made the whole car go quiet the first time they heard it while they puzzled over what had been said. - Submitted by: Vicki
The Living End's, "So Lonely"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, salami I'm feeling blue.
The Real Lyrics:
Whoa, so lonely I'm feeling blue.
The Story: This was the misunderstood lyric of an 8 year old who couldn't understand why salami would be sad. - Submitted by: May
