Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> T.O.K.

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 Misheard Lyrics:
[You what?]
The Real Lyrics:
[You a]
The Story: This came on for the first time on MTV Base. Since this chorus is practically the only feature of the song, I laughed throughout all of it thinking of how pathetic it was. A small man wailing, with a whiny voice, non-stop as a hook? No wonder the other band members were allegedly exclaiming 'you what' in the middle. I thought it was a joke. However, I listened to it again the next time when it appeared and I sussed the words. Now this is an example of why I loathe vocoders. - Submitted by: Devil Jones
