Misheard Lyrics

There are a few things in life that bring me immeasurable and inexplicable joy every time I encounter them. For example, krumping to classical music, “Marcel the Shell” videos, and (my all-time favorite) misheard song lyrics. Today, I wanted to share with you a few of my worst offenders for your own entertainment.

“Mad” by NE-YO

Actual Lyrics: “Girl, I don’t wanna go to bed mad at you.”

My Version: “Girl, I don’t wanna go to Maine mad at you.”

“Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake

Actual Lyrics: “‘Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul, I can…”

My Version: “‘Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of salt packets…”

“Frosty the Snowman” by Santa (I think)

Actual Lyrics: “With a corncob pipe and a button nose…”

My Version: “With a corncob pipe and a butt and nose…”

And a few bonus examples courtesy of my mother:

“Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani

Actual Lyrics: “‘Cause I ain’t no hollaback girl…”

Geralynn’s Version: “‘Cause there ain’t no harm in that, girl…”

“Replay” by Sean Kingston

Actual Lyrics: “Na na na na everyday, it’s like my iPod stuck on replay…”

Geralynn’s Version: “Na nan a na everyday, it’s like my eyeball stuck on a plate…”

I’d love to hear everyone else’s misheard lyrics! Feel free to leave a comment with your best examples on this post and remember… there ain’t no harm in that girl.

Until next time,
