Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Uriah Heep

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!).

Uriah Heep's, "Stealin'"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The Real Lyrics:
The Story: I went to a concert with no prior knowledge of the band whatsoever. "Stealin'" was one of the anchor songs, and the crowd was supposed to sing the word 'Stealin'' in the chorus. At first I thought it's 'Steven' (like the Alice Cooper song), but then I thought 'Naaah, there can't be two songs that much alike'. So I tried listening, but standing in the last row didn't help much. So figured 'fever' sounded reasonable enough, so I sang it. I imagine how annoyed was the guy next to me who was mouthing all the lyrics during the concert. - Submitted by: Rock Princess
