Bride of Mondegreens

a MONDEGREEN is the mishearing or interpretation of a statement or a song lyric

*the real lyrics are in ITALICS

Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough (Michael Jackson)
"C'mon with the porn stores (or stars)
Don't stop 'til you get enough"
"Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop 'til you get enough"

Working My Back To You Babe" (The Four Seasons)
"I'm working my way back to Yubei"
"I'm working my way back to you, babe"

Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic (The Police)
"I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
Ask her if she'll marry me and say no fucking way"
"I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
Ask her is she'll marry me in some old fashion way"

I Love It Loud (Kiss)
"Sweet boy, love it like a cookie pain
You better believe it"
"Street boy, no I never could be tamed
You better believe it"

"Tune it up, guilty proven innocent"
"Turn it up, hungry for my medicine"

"Because I love it... How I wanna hear it now"
"Because I love it... Loud, I wanna hear it loud"

Dancing Queen (Abba)
"You can dance You can die" (or dive)
"You can dance You can jive"

"Where they play the rap (or white) music"
"Where they play the right music"

"Minorities in the maternity ward"
"You're a teaser You turn 'em on"


  1. eh heh heh heh... saving them for later (sly laugh reminiscent of Krusty the Clown giving away a free trampeleen)

    you should check the other post about mondegreens down below...

  2. This song is really touching I like the part where it says "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic", because make me remember when we are in love we think all our partner does is perfect, and sometimes we are totally wrong.

  3. I should be honest, I hated this song at the beginning, but that was due to the fact it remembered me my first love, by the simple reason it was her favorite song.
