Not sure about the words to that song…..so what?

Ever find yourself singing the wrong words to a great song, but they sound so good you just keep using them? Here are a couple examples:

“Scuse me while I kiss this guy” instead of “Scuse me while I kiss the sky” (Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix)

“Hold me closer, Tony Danza” instead of “Hold me closer, tiny dancer” (Elton John, “Tiny Dancer”)

Well, these are called mondegreens, words mistaken for other words.  Submit your favorite mondegreen.  Try to submit the actual lyrics too.  I’m sure all the readers will be singing along with you!

    Wow there are just so many songs that come to mind—-Some I am still learning from the , how do I say 60’s—Some I learn from my kids today—“Bleeding in Love”–Lyrics.com is great but only if you know that or question the lyrics—lets face it we are usually singing along in our cars and who knows until we are with our kids and they laught at us.

    Don’t know about anyone else but I often like my interpretation of the words better than the actual words. Knowing the actual words can actually make or break how much I like a song. In the example given I may like a song about “Tony Danza ” (quite cute) but not some Tiny Dancer j/k. Moral of the story sometimes it is better to not know.
