Most Misheard Song LYRICS of all time! (Hindi & English)

There are always a few lyricists who craft songs thinking “Ab jaisi jiski soch”, and end up forcing us into creating our own senseless lyrics, because real lyrics toh hume kabhi samajh hi nahi aayi!

So here’s presenting a list of songs we’ve misheard so often, that the actual lyrics now appear as non-existent as REAL journalism.


1. Soni De Nakhre (Partner-2007)

Remember shouting

 “Candy pawn puppy jam candy, o jaane jaana candy paw..” 

on top of your voices, fisting your fingers into holding a microphone?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but its;

“Oh Keinde Pump Up The Jam, Oh Keinde

Oh Jannah Jannah keinde…”

(Instead of pumping up the jam, we need to pump up some sense inside our brains, I guess?)



2. Despacito (2017)

Since I don’t know Spanish, here goes my version;


age tum kuch bhi lagado, 

Aur phir chillado, 


For those who understand Spanish, here goes their version;

“Despacito, Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito

Deja que te diga cosas al oído

Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo



Translation- “Slowly (Despacito means slowly, yahi se inspiration ayi hai shayad “Dheeme Dheeme” ki)

I want to breathe in your neck slowly

Let me murmur things in your ear

So that you remember if you’re not with me





3. Twist (Love Aaj Kal-2009)

Here’s the thing, if sang fast, even my lyrics seem logical;

“Ronne chak, ronne chakke, ronne chakalo malalo malese”

Vaise toh verified lyrics bhi koi bohot logical nahi, but still;

“Round de chak one, Round de chak, Round de chak, Alloma lao say”

(My mind, after listening to so much of chak: “Chak dhoom dhoom, chak dhoom dhoom...:”)



4. Oooo Ahhhh Let the music play (Shamur-2008):

This was the quirkiest jam of my childhood which I used to dance on all the time yeh soch ke, ki baaki toh random beats hai!

But nope, those weren't incomprehensible words;

“O na kar maan rupaiye wala bar bar ke na rajje

Bai na kar maan rupaiye wala bar bar ke na rajje”


English Translation- “Oh don’t be so arrogant rich people

Oh please, don’t be so arrogant and happy”


Desi Translation- “Kyu paisa paisa karti hai, 

kyu paise pe tu marti hai” (I am waiting to get nominated for the oscars now, after this!)

(Even the most meaningless things have some meaning, right? Oh, except for my life!)



5. Señorita (2019):

With all due respect to Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, the problem is not with the song dearies, it's just me struggling with the pace, just like Rishabh Pant!

“I love it when you call me Señorita,

Iswaanaha nana nana eiya

Bereri riri oh la la la

Swala la la la…”

The actual lyrics, however, are as beautiful as my TV without Indian news channels!

“I love it when you call me Señorita

I wish I could pretend I didn't need ya

But every touch is ooh-la-la-la (oh la la, oh la la, tu hai meri fantasy. Yeh pakka last tha okay?)

It's true la-la-la”
