Mondegreens/Misheard Lyrics (Share? xD)

Post by darkwriter00 » Wed Dec 11, 2013 12:15 pm

Ever hear a song and thought the vocalist of a certain song sang something silly, dumb, wrong, or all of the above until you looked up the right lyrics? Ever thought of cruising around and finding Mondegreens that make you chuckle?

I've done the latter before, on YouTube. There's a bunch of misheard lyric stuff on YouTube if you search for them! Here's some that I can remember, plus one I discovered by accident while listening to the radio once.

Creedence Clearwater Revival - "Bad Moon Rising"

Misheard: "Don't growl tonight
'Cause a bum will take your life
There's a bathroom on the right."

Correct: "Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise."

Backstreet Boys - "I Want it That Way"

Misheard: "Tummy, why?
Ain't nothin' but a fart, hey
Tummy, why?
Ain't nothin' but a meat steak
Tummy, why?
I never wanna hear you say
I want it fat way"

Correct: "Tell me why
Ain't nothin' but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothin' but a mistake
Tell me why
I never wanna hear you say
I want it that way"

Jimi Hendrix - "Purple Haze"

Misheard: "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy"

Correct: "'Scuse me while I kiss the sky"

Billy Joel - "You May Be Right"

Misheard: "You made the rice
I made the gravy
But it just may be a tuna fish you're looking for"

Correct: "You may be right
I may be crazy
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for"

Celine Dion - "My Heart Will Go On"

Misheard: "I believe the hot dogs go on"

Correct: "I believe that the heart does go on"

Metallica - "Enter Sandman" (When I first heard about this mondegreen, right away I thought "OMG that's a Dean Winchester from Supernatural reference right there! And Dean likes Metallica...")

Misheard: "Dreams of war
Dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of baked apple pie"

Correct: "Dreams of war
Dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite"

Bon Jovi

Misheard: "You give love a band-aid"

Correct: "You give love a bad name"

Switchfoot - "I Dare You to Move" (The one I found on my own, and this was spur of the moment by the way! I was in a silly mood too. XD)

Misheard: "I dare you to moo, I dare you to moo"

Correct: "I dare you to move, I dare you to move"

I had a particularly bad one for Intolerance by Tool.
The original lyrics:
Tool wrote:But you lie, cheat, and steal.
And yet
I tolerate you.
I thought it said:
gh's ears wrote:You lie, chin steel.
How can a dime rate?
This was when I thought humans only used nonsensical words in songs. After listening to pop radio, I can't be sure this still isn't the case.

Really fun hard rock song; I personally love the bass in it.. I've always been a little embarrassed by the mondegreen, though.

ahaha I'll give it a listen sometime.

I just remembered a misheard NIN lyric! I looked at your avatar and on the Misheard Lyrics (90's Edition) one by youtuber pleated jeans came to mind. From the song Closer:

"My whole existence is flan"

The correct lyric being, "My whole existence is flawed"

NIN Head like a hole

Actual lyrics;
God money I'll do anything for you.
God money just tell me what you want me to.
God money nail me up against the wall.
God money don't want everything he wants it all.

What I heard was god honey.

I'm deaf :( But it made sense!

From Horsey Noises by Venetian Snares:
What I heard
gh's brain wrote:Hey horse-teeth girl, I wanna make you make horsey noises.
Actual line:
Venetian Snares wrote:Hey horse-teeth girl, I wanna make you make horsey noises.
Wait, that was the actual line?
. . . What the hell?

^ That made me grin...

Newbie: Sometimes our ears pick up the strangest things when hearing songs. I actually haven't heard many NIN songs. Funny lyric though.

Here's a few more I'll contribute.

Foo Fighters - "My Hero"

Misheard: There goes my hero
He's odd and hairy

Correct: There goes my hero
He's ordinary

Micheal Jackson - "Startin' Somethin'"

Misheard: I'm insane at the sound of Microsoft

Correct: Ma Ma Se,
Ma Ma Sa, Ma Ma Coo Sa

(The following two I recently discovered. x3)

AC/DC - "Highway to Hell"

Misheard: Playstation, playin' my dudes

Correct: Hey Satan, paid my dues

Trapt - "Headstrong"

Misheard: See inside, your salad bar, yeah

Correct: See inside, inside of our heads, yeah

From Time by Pink Floyd:

Misheard:
Logan's brain wrote:d**k around on a piece of ground in your hometown.
Correct:
Pink Floyd wrote:Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown.
Really, mine still makes sense.
I might have more sometime soon, but I'm horribly busy right now.

Hee, I love Pink Floyd! The Dark Side of the Moon is a fave album I have.

Breaking Benjamin - "Blow Me Away" (2 amusing misheards from this I found via YouTube)

Misheard: Fly on your goats
It's time to row
Blow me away

Correct: Fire your guns
It's time to roll
Blow me away

Misheard: You wanted a bath
DON'T MAKE ME PIE!

Correct: You wanted it back
DON'T MAKE ME FIGHT!

Remembered another silly mondegreen. The Cranberries - "Linger"

Misheard: Do you have too many fingers?

Correct: Do you have to let it linger?
