BEST MISHEARD LYRICS. VIDEO hahaha #YouWillCry

Chatting on the show today about how some people really stuff up lyrics. haha.
I am so not judging, I am very guilty of proudly singing some of the most incorrect lines ever. Sometimes though, it is understandable, because they just sound the same. It’s called a ‘mondegreen’. And I think they are KAK funny.

Mondegreen

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A mondegreen is the mishearing or misinterpretation of a phrase as a result of near-homophony, in a way that gives it a new meaning. It most commonly is applied to a line in a poem or a lyric in a song.[1][2] American writer Sylvia Wright coined the term in her essay “The Death of Lady Mondegreen,” published in Harper’s Magazine in November 1954.[3] “Mondegreen” was included in the 2000 edition of the Random House Webster’s College Dictionary. Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary added the word in 2008.[4][5] The phenomenon is not limited to English, with examples cited by Fyodor Dostoyevsky,[6] in the Hebrew song Háva Nagíla (“Let’s Be Happy”),[7] and in Bollywood movies.[8]

A closely related category is soramimi—songs that produce unintended meanings when homophonically translated to another language.[9]

The unintentionally incorrect use of similar-sounding words or phrases in speaking is a malapropism. If there is a connection in meaning, it can be called an eggcorn. If a person stubbornly sticks to a mispronunciation after being corrected, that person has committed a mumpsimus.[10]
