2. Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani

Misheard Lyrics: “I ain’t no Harlem black girl.”

Correct Lyrics: “I ain’t no hollaback girl.”

I think the confusion about these lyrics stemmed from the fact that no one knew what the heck a hollaback girl was when the song first came out, so everyone just replaced it with whatever it sounded like to them.

Apparently this is an incredibly common misheard lyric.2
