Editor’s Corner: Mondegreens from the UK

It’s Friday! Let’s ease into the weekend with some mondegreens from UK bands. Today’s selection of mondegreens is brought to you by Hit Me with Your Pet Shark: Misheard Lyrics of the 1980s, by Charles Grosvenor Jr.

Song Title Artist/Group Mondegreen Actual Lyrics
The Reflex Duran Duran The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dog The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
Hungry Like the Wolf Duran Duran Seen in the subway:

Earth, Wind, and Fire

Steam in the subway
Earth is afire
Rio Duran Duran The end of the drive, a llama to ride At the end of the drive, the lawmen arrive
Baby’s Coming Back Eurythmics It’s all right, babies come in bags It’s all right, baby’s coming back
Here Comes the Rain Again Eurythmics Falling on my head like a mule in motion Falling on my head like a new emotion
Red Skies at Night The Fixx Rich guys with knives Red skies at night
No Reply at All Genesis There’s soda, pie, and all There’s no reply at all
Invisible Touch Genesis She has built-in amenities She’s got a built-in ability
Father Figure George Michael To be bowling naked
At your side
To be bold and naked
At your side
Faith George Michael My Buddhist ocean My foolish notion
Mirror Man Human League Here comes the mirror man,
Says he’s a meatball fan
Here comes the mirror man,
Says he’s a people fan
