Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Stampeders

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!).

Sweep, Sweep, Sweep, Sweep City Woman

Sweet, Sweet, Sweet, Sweet City Woman
The Story: When I was 5 (in 1971) there our mom kept the broom in the kitchen near the table and I remember one of the kitchen chairs was like a bench. I would ride in the car with my Dad to the grocery store and used to hear this song on the way there...that's how I got to associate the Misheard Lyrics. This incidentally is the VERY FIRST pop song I can remember hearing in my life. - Submitted by: Jim Jaworski
