    “That’s the way that the world goes ‘roundYou’re up one day, the next you’re downIt’s a half-an-inch of water and you think you’re gonna drownThat’s the way that the world goes ’round” John Prine, “That’s The Way the World Goes Round”

    During a break a woman asked him to sing the “Happy Enchilada” song. Turns out that’s what she thought the third line was.

    (I suspect the strip will result in the posting of many musical mondegreens…) “Scuze me while I kiss this guy…”

    She did say the litter was blowing, so I say she deliberately misunderstood

    The nice thing about this strip is that I am discovering American music.

    Go to the Wikipedia entry “mondegreen.” It’s hilarious.

    There is currently a commercial running on Pandora, about Glasses I think, and in the background there someone is singing what sounds like “Fried rice”. I don’t know what they are singing, but I know that isn’t it.

    For some reason, I always find misheard lyrics hilarious. So I really enjoyed today’s comic! It was also pretty sweet.

    From my experience, people who call a thing “one of the best” songs, books, movies, bikes, what-have-you, “ever” are not great fun to hang out with. Too doctrinaire. I prefer people who say, “One of my favorites. What’s yours?”

    Thanks to Mike Nesmith, I started calling these misunderstood lyrics “One ton tomatoes” long before I had the internet, or could look up the term mondegreen.

    All the boys think she’s a spaz (star) she’s got, Betty Davis’ eyes! I knew someone who insisted that Kim Cairns was saying spaz (’’)

    Yeah, lots of kids in junior high got kinda worked up about the prospect of Elton John’s Benny (and the Jets) having electric boobs.

    Maybe you’re familiar with J.J. Cale, maybe you’re not, but you are, just not by name. If you’re alive today, you’re almost certainly familiar with some of his songs. You may, in fact, be a little surprised to learn Eric Clapton did not write his hit, “Cocaine.” Or “After Midnight.” Played the hell out of them, to be sure. But no better than Cale himself, which I think Clapton might be the first to point out.

    I remember Dizzy Gillespie declaring at a concert, “If it’s good TO ya, it’s gotta be good FOR ya!” So kale is good for ya, but not everyone thinks it’s all that good to them. But Cale was good to, and for, everyone.

    That last paragraph was mostly to fill space and remember a good Dizzy Gillespie concert but that, alas, I never saw Cale perform. That’s all. Don’t judge me too harshly. I’m the sensitive kind.

    To be fair, it’s hard to hear the Z over the instruments. And Cale did write about cocaine.

    Nobody mentioned “Blinded by the Light.” It’s “Little Early Purly came by in his curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride.” It is not “…gave my anus curly-whirly…” Ecch.
