Editor’s Corner: Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza

I have more number rules for you, but it is Friday. Friday is a day to relax a little and start easing into the weekend. Plus, I have a new book of mondegreens (misheard song lyrics, for those of you new to the Editor’s Corner). I still have some from the last contest, too.

Today’s mondegreens are from our favorite collector, Charles Grosvenor Jr., and his book Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza.

Song Title Artist/Group Actual Lyrics Mondegreen
Let Me Go 3 Doors Down In this world,
There’s real and make believe
In this world,

There’s real and Maybeline

In Da Club 50 Cent We’re gon’ sip Bacardi like it’s your birthday We’re gon’ send a cardy like it’s your birthday
I Do (Cherish You) 98 Degrees Your hand brushes mine Your hair versus mine
Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche) 98 Degrees Give me just one night, una noche! Give me just one night, on a lawn chair!
Are You That Somebody? Aaliyah Give me goose bumps and high fevers Give me tube socks and long sleeves
We Need a Resolution Aaliyah Now tell me what’s the reason? Stupid yo? Now tell me what’s the reason? Snoop video?
Crazy Aerosmith I feel like the color blue. I feel like a caribou.
Dude Looks Like a Lady Aerosmith Dude looks like a lady Do the dragon lady
Jaded Aerosmith You think that’s where it’s at,
But is that where it’s supposed to be
Your finger’s where it’s at,

But is that where it’s supposed to be

Janie’s Got a Gun Aerosmith Run away from the pain, yeah Run away from the pagan
You Don’t Know My Name Alicia Keys And your cuff links are shining all bright And your cough mixture’s shining all bright
If I Ain’t Got You Alicia Keys Some people want diamond rings Some people want collard greens
