Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Wang Chung

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!).

Wang Chung's, "Dance Hall Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Dance your legs off.
The Real Lyrics:
Dance hall days
The Story: The misheard lyrics were actually heard by a long lasting friend. But I have never been able to listen to the song without singing, 'Dance your legs off.' In fact, I have insisted that my 15 year old son know 'both' versions of the song. (He'll have to decide when he is my age!) - Submitted by: Mary Celia Decker
Wang Chung's, "Dance Hall Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take your baby by the ears
And lay upon her doggie smears.
The Real Lyrics:
Take your baby by the ears
And play upon her darkest fears.
The Story: For 20 years, I thought those were the correct lyrics until my wife burst out laughing when I was singing it (April 2006). - Submitted by: Steve Mirmina
Wang Chung's, "Dance Hall Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take your baby by the hand
And make her do what pirates done
The Real Lyrics:
Take your baby by the hand
And make her do a high handstand
The Story: I never understood what he was saying in that first part, but I was even more surprised by what it actually was. Apparently, in the days of dance halls, doing a high handstand was commonplace! - Submitted by: Larcen Tyler
Wang Chung's, "Dance Hall Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Take your baby by the wrist
And in her mouth, you have a p***
And on her breasts, you suck and chew.
The Real Lyrics:
Take your baby by the wrist
And in her mouth an amethyst
And in her eyes, two sapphires blue.
The Story: The P part of the lyric was suggested by one of my sisters, who is usually much more refined. I always heard the next line as 'amethyst', but we both agreed that didn't make a whole lot of sense. I have no comment on the next line. - Submitted by: Chris
Wang Chung's, "Dance Hall Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
We were so enticed
With the dance hall days
We were cool on Christ
The Real Lyrics:
We were so in phase
With the dance hall days
We were cool on craze.
The Story: 32 years after the fact, I was singing this a karaoke. The real lyrics came up and I literally stopped singing for a moment out of shock. I just sang my lyrics anyway. - Submitted by: Adrock
Wang Chung's, "Everybody Have Fun Tonight"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Everybody wear junk tonight.
The Real Lyrics:
Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
The Story: Mostly I thought they were having fun with the lyrics. I only discovered that this was not correct when searching for the lyrics this morning. I've been singing it wrong for like what, 30 years? - Submitted by: Petie Martin
