Misheard Lyrics! | A post where I totally don’t embarrass myself.

Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

I’d been toying around with this idea in my head for a while, and I finally put it to paper screen!

Basically I’ll be sharing a few lyrics that I misheard, and when I found out the real lyrics, I was like oh, yeah that makes more sense. So, let’s get into it!

Number 1:

Eyes are like candy and pitiful
But strawberries and cigarettes always taste like you

– Strawberries and Cigarettes, Troye Sivan (Riddhi’s Version)

Lighters and candy, I’ve been a fool
But strawberries and cigarettes always taste like you

– Strawberries and Cigarettes, Troye Sivan

I mean, eyes can be like candy- appealing and be pitiful, because of the sorrow they hide, hence the lyrics make perfect sense.

Number 2:

You cleaned up my body like you wanted it forever

-What a time, Julia Michaels ft. Niall Horan (Riddhi’s Version)

You clinged to my body like you wanted it forever

-What a time, Julia Michaels ft. Niall Horan

Yes, you clean up people’s bodies when you love them. As Charles Boyle once said, washing your partner’s hair is the most intimate thing you can do with them. And what’s washing their hair? Cleaning a part of their body.

Wow, I am great at defending my stupidity, maybe I should become a lawyer.

Number 3:

When the meals are back, I pick up my phone

-Fake, Lauv ft. Conan Gray (Riddhi’s version)

When the real you’s back, I’ll pick up my phone

-Fake, Lauv ft. Conan Gray

Okay, look I know this makes no sense in the song, but if you talk about it as a sentence, it makes perfect sense as a sense. Only when my meal is here, and I get out my hanger (as angry is to anger, hangry is to hanger), I pick up my phone. See! Perfect sense!

Number 4:

What you breathing, what you breathing?

– epiphany, Taylor Swift (Riddhi’s version)

Watch you breathe in, watch you breathe in

– epiphany, Taylor Swift

Yes, because people breathe so many different kinds of things, not just air, and oxygen in particular.

Number 5:

Never switch, never stop
I could see us at the top
Girl, I only got there

-Big Plans, Why Don’t We (Riddhi’s version)

Never switch, never stop
I could see us at the top
Girl, why don’t we go there?

– Big Plans, Why Don’t We

I mean, it kinda makes sense? Like the guy got there, and he’s pulling the girl up? Maybe? No? Yeah, no.

Number 6:

What if I afore you?
Just let me adore you

-Adore You, Harry Styles (Riddhi’s version)

I’d walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you

– Adore You, Harry Styles

Yeah this doesn’t make sense.

Number 7:

I don’t know if I can make it happen
No matter what the odds, I am gonna try

-Don’t Wake Me Up, Jonas Blue (Riddhi’s version)

I don’t know if I can make you happy
No matter what the odds, I am gonna try

– Don’t Wake Me Up, Jonas Blue

This actually makes sense, but honestly, it’s not difficult to make out the correct lyrics, I literally don’t know how I misheard these.


That’s all I have for you! Let me know in the comments some lyrics you’ve misheard(except the blank space- list of ex-lovers one,lol)!

  2. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ The washing bodies one!! I CAN’T!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ A lot of my own misheard lyrics go back to my German childhood days, so I’m afraid I can’t very well explain them, but I do relate to this a lot!

  3. whatifiaforeyou
    Honestly, though: misheard lyrics are a solid 10/10. One time, I thought it was “girl you’ll be shining so bright” instead of “gold jewellery shining so bright” in That’s What I Like… and, “tequila is not my son” instead of THE KID IS NOT MY SON in Billie Jean,,,, aaahhaahahah
    whatifiaforeyou… ICONIC, I SAY

  4. the actual lyrics for ephiphany are ‘watch you breathe in, watch you breathing outtt’
    Taylor plays with words like that. She did it with ‘cardigan’ and ‘car again’ too, and honestly it’s SO CLEVER.
