Wouldn’t those droplets be called dew?
another musical mondegreen, but from Reginald Kenneth Dwight: “hold me closer, Tony Danza”
“They have slay’d the Duke of York and Lady Mondegreen.”
One time I created a salami that weighed 614 pounds and was 326.5 feet long.
Better the fog than landing on people and biting them.
Take care and may God bless.
“Mondegreen”, so THAT’S what I was hearing from Cheeto head all this time instead of lies and b. s.. Who knew? /s
There’s a whole book devoted to misheard lyrics.
Tandil picked the wrong deli meat! They should have tried ham or bologna! Salami is the only deli meat I will leave off of my Super Sandwiches.
That salami story is a bunch of baloney.
Did the town of Tandil also create a loaf of the bread and a pot of mustard large enough to make a 326.4 foot long salami sandwich?
“’Scuse me while I kiss this bathroom on the right.”
Despite this being an oft cited example, did anyone really think this was what Jimi was actually singing?
One of my favorite lyricists, John Prine, who just passed away on Tuesday due to complications from Covid-19…
also sometimes sang a Mondegreen that a fan heard in one of his songs… or sometimes used it as the song title in a playlist.
He liked to tell the story in concert, and you can find it on YouTube….
A woman approached the stage and asked him to sing his song about “The Happy Enchilada”…
He humorously says he’s never written about food, so he told her maybe she had him mixed up with Jimmy Buffett…
but she insisted it was him.
So he asked her to tell him some more of the lyrics…
She said, “It’s a happy enchilada and you think you’re gonna drown.”
“That’s the way, the world goes ’round….
Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down…
It’s a half an inch of water and you think you’re gonna drown…"
R.I.P John Prine
There is a bathroom on the right….. “Bad Moon Rising”
One of my favorite misheard lyric vids is Pearl Jam’s Yellow Ledbetter:
At six years old my friend Ronnie sang along with Buddy Holly’s “Peggy Sue”: “With a love oh where in to oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue.” I corrected him but he’d have no part of it.
Pray tell, what did they do with said salami?
My favorite Mondegreen: Alanis Morissette’s, “You Oughta Know”. “…or the cross-eyed bear that you gave to me.”
Wait – what’s “mondescreen”???
Did anyone notice the guitar player illustration is picking left handed? No too many left handed guitar & banjo players.
That’s a lot of baloney.
For a natural casing how did they find an animal whose intestines were that long?

How often is there fog in a desert? It is a desert because of a lack of moisture.
Here’s one: “oh a tree in motion…”
“Big boys don’t cry, big boys don’t cry” sounds like “requesting quiet, requesting quiet…”
How long did it take to smoke that meat?
Apologies for the terrible video quality but this is quite funny: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9_3nQFNy-w
Ellen Degeneres used to have a routine in her standup act about misheard lyrics. She was riding with a friend when Billy Joel’s “Keeping the Faith” came on the radio, and her friend sang, “And I was kicked in the face!”
“Mondesreen” huh? So that’s what happens when a politician talks…
