Friday Funny February 25, 2022 Some Mondegreens

Happy Friday!  Congratulations on making it to the end of February!  This week I thought I would break out some more song lyrics that are often misheard.  (If you want to impress your friends – they are called mondegreens.)  I am guessing there is a good chance one or more of these songs will be stuck in your head until the first of March.

Enjoy!

“We built this city on sausage rolls”/“We built this city on rock and roll”

‘We Built This City’ by Starship

“Saving his life from this warm sausage tea”/“Spare him his life from this monstrosity”

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ by Queen

“A year has passed since I broke my nose”/“A year has passed since I wrote my note”

‘Message in a Bottle’ by The Police

“This is the dawning of the Age of Asparagus”/“This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius”

‘Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In’ by Fifth Dimension

“Kicking your cat all over the place”/“Kicking your can all over the place”

‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen

“We didn’t start the fire, it was always burning, said the worst attorney”/ “We didn’t start the fire, it was always burning, since the world’s been turning”

‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’ by Billy Joel

“You’ve been outright offensive, for so long now”/“You’ve been out riding fences, for so long now”

‘Desperado’ by The Eagles

“I travel the world in generic jeans”/“I travel the world and the seven seas”

“See that girl, watch her scream, kicking the dancing queen”/“See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen”

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

“Late February days; and now, at last,
Might you have thought that winter’s woe was past;
So fair the sky was, and so soft the air.”


~William Morris, “February: Bellerophon in Lycia,” The Earthly Paradise: A Poem, 1870
