  • Mondegreen Much?

    [Mondegreen|http://www.answers.com/mondegreen&r=67]
    mon·de·green (mon'd?-gren', môn'-)
    n. A series of words that result from the mishearing or misinterpretation of a statement or song lyric.

    My personal favorite is one from my brother when we were kids. He swore (and I won a bet) that Boston was singing "All I want is to have my piece of pie" instead of "peace of mind". Cracked me up. Still does. Of course there is "Big old jet had a light on", "the girl with colitis goes by", and "scuse me will i kiss this guy".

    What are your favorites, old or new?

            There were some very nasty lyric sheets making the rounds on that one when I was in Jr. High. Parents were crapping themselves to get it banned. Turns out was very clean old folk song about some sailor leaving his main squeeze.

              Wrapped up like a douche in the middle of the night. (I sang it this way for years, and until today never really knew exactly the words that were being sung). hehehehe

              Should be:
              Original Lyrics:
              Blinded by the light
              Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night.

                  Eric,

                  Can't say what I sang ever made sense to me, but I just couldn't figure out wtf it was saying. I mean, if you're wrapped up like a douche, how much could you really do? It's kinda be hard to move wouldn't it?

                          My older brother used to sing

                          "headfeathers and leather" instead of Handbangers in leather from Heavy Metal by Sr. Samus Hagaris
                          Apparently his GF at the time made the initial mistake and he ran with it.
