Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Veronicas

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 Veronicas', "Leave Me Alone"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Leave me alone, this is all funny words
I'll be on the phone, 'cause I've a lot of birds.
The Real Lyrics:
Leave me alone, this isn't gonna work
Don't call me on the phone, I'm all out of the words.
The Story: I was listening to it, and I kept hearing birds and funny. So I was like, "But I thought she said 'leave me alone'. And why would she want to talk to that person she's mad about, and saying she has lots of birds? What does birds have to do with phones anyways?" Then when I kept listening to it, I realized it wasn't "birds & funny" I heard. I was laughing so hard. - Submitted by: Mii-de
