Editor’s Corner: Corndog winter’s night

Happy Friday!

Today’s selection of misheard song lyrics is brought to you by Hit Me with Your Pet Shark: Misheard Lyrics of the 1980s, by Charles Grosvenor Jr.

Coming soon…holiday song mondegreens from my latest purchase: Deck the Halls with Buddy Holly.

Song Title Artist/Group Mondegreen Actual Lyrics
King of Pain The Police There’s a little black spot on your lung today There’s a little black spot on the sun today
Wrapped Around Your Finger The Police Caught between the skillet and your rib dish Caught between the Scylla and Charybdis
Crazy Little Thing Called Love Queen She leaves me in a cocoa sweat She leaves me in a cool, cool sweat
Send Me an Angel Real Life Send me an eggshell Send me an angel
It’s the End of the World As We Know It R.E.M. Lenny Bruce in birthday pants Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs
Can’t Fight This Feeling REO Speedwagon Corndog winter’s night Cold, dark winter’s night
Simply Irresistible Robert Palmer Her cantaloupe is mythical That kind of love is mythical
It Must Have Been Love Roxette It must have been rum,

But I’m sober now

It must have been love,

But it’s over now

Soft Cell Tainted Love The lovely Cher seems to go nowhere The love we share seems to go nowhere
The Smiths Bigmouth Strikes Again I’d like to mash a green tooth in your head I’d like to smash every tooth in your head
Cool for Cats Squeeze School for cats Cool for cats
Tempted Squeeze Tempted by the foot of your mother Tempted by the fruit of another
