Editor’s Corner: Mondegreens for Halloween

It’s Friday, which means it is time for more misheard song lyrics (a.k.a. mondegreens) from Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza, by Charles Grosvenor Jr.

I hope you all enjoy your Halloween tomorrow, and then All Saints Day, Dia de los Muertos, and the end of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday.

Song Title Artist/Group Actual Lyrics Mondegreen
Better Man Pearl Jam Can’t find a better man Can’t find the Vedder man
Glorified G Pearl Jam Glorified version of a pellet gun You’re five birds and I’m a pelican
Even Flow Pearl Jam Thoughts arrive like butterflies Mozzarella butterflies
Get the Party Started Pink I’m coming up, so you better get this party started! I’ve got a knife, so you better get this party started!
Back on the Chain Gang The Pretenders Now I’m back on the chain gang Now I’m back on the train, yeah
Middle of the Road The Pretenders I’m standing in the middle of life with my plans behind me I’m standing in the middle of life with my pants behind me
When Doves Cry Prince Maybe, you’re just like my mother Maybe, I dress like my mother
Everything in the Right Place Radiohead There are two colors in my head There are two curlers in my hair
Fake Plastic Trees Radiohead He used to do surgery, for girls in the eighties He used to do surgery, for girls in the A-Team
Killing in the Name Rage Against the Machine Killing in the name of Kill him with a paintball
Bulls on Parade Rage Against the Machine They rally ‘round the family, with a pocket full of shells Runnin’ ‘round the family, with a flock of Polish elves
