Editor’s Corner: More Mondegreens

Many of you mentioned that you enjoyed the mondegreens I provided a week or so ago, so I thought I’d try to dig up some more. Some of these may be repeats, but some are new. Several cracked me up and I hope they bring a smile to your face, too! These are from a collection of mondegreens here. [KC – There are some naughty ones there, so beware if you decide to visit
that page.]

Song Title Artist/Group Actual Lyrics Mondegreen
Rocket Man Elton John Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone Rocket man, burning all the trees off every lawn
Stairway to Heaven Led Zeppelin And as we wind on down the road, our shadows taller than our souls And there’s a wino down the road, I should have stolen Oreos
Higher Love Steve Winwood Bring me a higher love Bring me an iron lung
Every Time You Go Away Paul Young Every time you go away, you take a piece of me with you Every time you go away you take a piece of meat with you
I’ve Got Two Tickets to Paradise Eddie Money I’ve got two tickets to paradise I’ve got two chickens with parrot eyes
I Wanna Be Sedated The Ramones I wanna be sedated I wanna piece of bacon
Middle of the Road Pretenders I’m standing in the middle of life with my pains behind me I’m standing in the middle of life with my pants behind me
You Don’t Bring Me Flowers Neil Diamond You hardly talk to me anymore, when I come through the door at the end of the day You hardly talk to me anymore, when I Kung Fu the door at the end of the day
