Editor’s Corner: Mondegreen treats, early in the week

I’m starting the weekend a day early with Thursday mondegreens. Before I do, however, I want to tell you a secret. I am sharing the next couple of weeks in Editor’s Corner with three of my favorite women: Donna Bradley Burcher, Jackie Solano, and Laura Bowers. It’s a little crowded in the corner, so it’s a good thing we get along.

Please welcome my co-editors as they continue to pass along grammar tidbits, vocabulary vittles, and language lumps to you for your reading and learning pleasure.

Today’s mondegreens are from The Ants Are My Friends, by Martin Toseland.

Song Title Artist/Group Mondegreen Actual Lyrics
Champagne Supernova Oasis Someday you will find me
Carpeting the landslide
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds The Beatles The girl with colitis goes by The girl with kaleidoscope eyes
All My Loving The Beatles All my luggage, I will send to you All my lovin’, I will send to you
Another Brick in the Wall Part II Pink Floyd No Dukes of Hazzard in the classroom No dark sarcasm in the classroom
We Will Rock You Queen You’ve got mud on your face
Front disc brakes
You’ve got mud on your face
A big disgrace
I’m a Believer The Monkees Then I saw her face
Now I’m gonna leave her
Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Oh What a Night Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons I’ve got the runs like a rolling bolt of thunder I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder
Ghostbusters Ray Parker Jr Who you gonna call?
Gus Foster!
Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!
Higher Love Steve Winwood Bring me an iron lung Bring me a higher love
Losing My Religion REM Life is bigger
Bigger than you
And you are knock-kneed
Life is bigger
Bigger than you
And you are not me
You Don’t Bring Me Flowers Neil Diamond You hardly talk to me anymore, when I kung fu the door at the end of the day You hardly talk to me anymore, when I come through the door at the end of the day

Next time we meet, I hope to have a lot of interesting information to share and tales to tell!
