Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Vines

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 Vines', "Get Free"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll take your fire, fire.
The Real Lyrics:
I'll take a photo for ya.
The Story: I was in the car with a friend and I notice that he was mouthing the words to this song. When he got to this part he sang 'I'll take your fire, fire!!' I switched off the radio and said, "Jeremy, it's 'I'll take a photo for you'" He didn't think it made sense. Therefore, we had to look it up when we got to my house. - Submitted by: John
The Vines', "Get Free"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Put on a kettle for ya.
The Real Lyrics:
Move out of California
The Story: I thought 'put on a kettle for ya' was a little too cerebral for this band. For a brief period of time I also thought the lyric was 'pilates comin' for ya'. - Submitted by: Kieran
