We’ve all been there. Sometimes artists squish and morph words into such odd-sounding lyrics that what you think are the words to a classic song aren’t, actually.

Below are some of the most classically and commonly misheard lyrics and what they actually are, so next time your favorite Johnny Nash song comes on, you’re not talking about some poor soul named Lorraine. Check them out, and educate yourself!

What the words actually are: “Scaramouche, scaramouche, will you do the fandango?”
