Editor’s Corner: Mondegreen Halloween

Happy Halloween!

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
Waiting for a Girl Like You Foreigner So Mormon true So warm and true
Welcome to the Jungle Guns n’ Roses If you got the money honey
We got George’s knees
If you got the money honey
We got your disease
Maneater Hall & Oates And you can tell by the purple Jaguar A she-cat tamed by the purr of a jaguar
Happy to Be Stuck with You Huey Lewis & the News I’m so happy to discomfort you I’m so happy to be stuck with you
St. Elmo’s Fire John Parr I can see the pandas fly I can see the banners fly
Ask the Lonely Journey When you’re feeling loads of hair When you’re feeling love’s unfair
Don’t Stop Believin’ Journey Some were born to bring the booze Some were born to sing the blues
Open Arms Journey So now I come to you
With leprechauns
So now I come to you
With open arms
Livin’ After Midnight Judas Priest I set my sights on little old men I set my sights and then home in
Turbo Lover Judas Priest I’m your turtle lover I’m your turbo love
You’ve Got Another Thing Coming Judas Priest Stand tall, I’ve got a cattle prod Stand tall, I’m young and kinda proud
