Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Romantics

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!).

What I Like About You & Other Hits album at
The Romantics', "Just What I Needed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I guess you're just my Juanita
Juantia someone to please.
The Real Lyrics:
I guess you're just what I needed
I needed someone to please.
The Story: My friend was shouting this song one day when it came on the radio, 'Juanita Juantia!', I was crying laughing. Now when I hear the song I just sing the Juanita part instead of the real lyrics, it fits really well! :) - Submitted by: Jennifer
The Romantics', "What I Like About You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
That's why I like to f*** you.
The Real Lyrics:
That's what I like about you.
The Story: I saw and heard this on an ad on the TV as a kid. I thought it was ok. Heck, it was on TV wasn't it? So when my dad came thru the room, I thought I'd test the waters with my version. I learned to walk again 6 months later. (j/k) - Submitted by: D. Alexander
The Romantics', "What I Like About You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
What I like about Blue
The Real Lyrics:
What I Like About You
The Story: I was hearing a version of this song on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade promoting the new Blue's Clues reboot called Blue's Clues and You, and it was sung as "What I like about Blue". So anyone could have misheard it this way in the actual song. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
