Did you mishear something? The word "sea"? The word "hair"?

Is she a celebrity?

Did you hear the rest correctly? So that it'd be "woman with ____"?
Is "sea hair" actually one single word?
Is it "see" instead of "sea"?

The word you misheard as "hair" - does it rhyme with "hair"? "See there?"

Hurrah a Mondegreen puzzle . If you scan some of the solved puzzles archive you'll see that we love a good mondegreen here.

Is this a current song ? or one you heard as a child? Does the mondegreen occur during the chorus? Is it a pop song? rock? country? r&b? jazz? blues? other?

Do you think it's likely that others have misheard these lyrics similarly to yourself? Just realised that you didn't actually say that it was you who had misheard the lyrics so I'm assuming it was?
If not is it important that we find out who did?

Are the words "see her" repeated throughout the song? Is the song title the woman's name? Does it include the woman's name?

Hurrah a Mondegreen puzzle . If you scan some of the solved puzzles archive you'll see that we love a good mondegreen here. I did not knew that word, I am going to check them because I find them very hilarious.

Is this a current song ? Is not new or one you heard as a child? Let say a teenager Does the mondegreen occur during the chorus? Yes Is it a pop song? rock? This country? r&b? jazz? blues? other?

Do you think it's likely that others have misheard these lyrics similarly to yourself? Well, maybe people with a lot of imagination but I think it is not very likely Just realised that you didn't actually say that it was you who had misheard the lyrics so I'm assuming it was? Actually I was not the person who misheard the song, but lets imagine I was (;
If not is it important that we find out who did? It is not important

-Balin-
Are the words "see her" repeated throughout the song? Yes Is the song title the woman's name? Yes Does it include the woman's name? So, Yes
You are very on the right track, maybe you have already an answer?

Is the song by a single artist? Male? Female? A band?

Although I was born then, the '90s is not my hotbed for music. A bit ironic, eh?

"Maria" (by Blondie)? Yes

-----SPOILER-------

I have heard of a person who misunderstood the phrase "Maria, you've got to see her" with "Maria, you've got the sea hair" which is really a very funny nonsense. Song Maria from Blondie.

Good job for Balin, Peter and Kaylee

I understand that Spanish makes no distinction between a short "eh" and a long "ay," or "t" and "th," so I can see how you would get those confused.

Yes, that is possible; that is why I think that it is not very likely that and native english speaker confuses this lyric

If you can help me with my Spanish, I might be able to give you a hand with your English.

"I have heard of a person this is correct, but sounds a bit formal; "I heard of someone" is what I would probably say who misunderstood the phrase 'Maria, you've got to see her' with the correct phrasing is "misunderstood x as y" and not "misunderstood x with y"; I can see how you would get confused, given phrases like "confuse x with y," "mix x with y," etc. 'Maria, you've got the sea hair' which is really a very funny nonsense "nonsense" is a mass noun, so we don't use indefinite articles like the word "a" with it. Song Maria from we say "[name] by [creator]" for all forms of art Blondie."

Ey! Thanks a lot. I will take it into account.

misunderstand x as y
nonsense can not be treated as a single noun
Maria by Blondie

Claro que te puedo ayudar con tu español si quieres algún día podemos hablar, un rato en inglés, un rato en español
