Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Rasmus

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 Rasmus', "In The Shadows"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I've been sucking, I've been licking
For tomorrows all my life
The Real Lyrics:
I've been searching, I've been living
For tomorrows all my life.
The Story: I was just humming this to myself when my niece came in and said 'Omm, I'm telling! You're singing that song that goes, 'I've been sucking, I've been licking'' I was dying with laughter; I didn't even know she knew about that kinda stuff, she's only 4! - Submitted by: Rushelle
The Rasmus', "In The Shadows"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take me, I've been
F***ing, f***ing in circles.
The Real Lyrics:
Lately, I've been
Walking, walking in circles.
The Story: My friend, Alex and I were listening to each other's CDs, when I decide to put on The Rasmus. At first, he thinks they stink, since their music is clean. But when it gets to that part, he make a face that he usually makes when he's humoristically disgusted: scowl on the eyes, and mouth is wide open. When he stops making that face, I laugh, and tell him it's 'He's walking', not doing what I know he thinks he's doing in his twisted mind. Which after that, he gives a brisk laugh of relief. - Submitted by: Joel Martinez
