Bad Moon Rising, Credence Clearwater Revivalmondegreen

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
I see bad times today.

Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bathroom on the right bad moon on the rise.

Mondegreen of the Week

My Own Worst Enemy, Litmondegreen1

Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk
I didn’t mean to call you fat that
I can’t remember what was said or what you threw at me
Please tell me
Please tell me why
My car is in the front yard
And I’m sleeping with my clothes on
I came in through the window last night
And you’re gone

Mondegreen of the Week

Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, The Beatlesmondegreen1

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with colitis goes by kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she’s gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Lucy in the sky with diamonds…

Mondegreen of the Week

Africa, Totomondegreen1

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She’s coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, hurry boy, its waiting there for you

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
Theres nothing that a hundred men on Mars or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Mondegreen of the Week

Run (I’m a Natural Disaster), Gnarls Barkley

mondegreen1

Yeah it’s still the same
Can’t you feel the pain
When the needle hits the vein
Ain’t nothing like the real thing
I’ve seen it once before
And oh it’s something else
Good god

Willie Wang Runaway
Willie Wang Runaway
Run children
Run for your life
Runaway
Runaway
Run children
Here it comes
I said run
Alright

Hurry little children
Run this way
I have got a piece that plays beast at bay

Mondegreen of the Week

You’re So Vain, Carly Simon

You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair and that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved, and one of them was me
I had some dreams they were clowns clouds in my coffee
Clowns clouds in my coffee, and

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

I had some dreams they were clowns clouds in my coffee
Clowns Clouds in my coffee, and

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

Mondegreen of the Week

I Build This Garden For Us, Lenny Kravitz

I built this goddamn forest
I
build this garden for us


This lovely garden
I build a temple of love
Walk with the father
Won’t be a bother
To touch the earth as it was
We’ll farm the land each day
And in the sunshine we will play
Glory glory for the day he came
Our tears had gone away
We’ll make love in the shade
And in the ocean we will bathe
Little fishies in the sea
Say hooray

I built this goddamn forest I build this garden for us, I built this goddamn forest I build this garden for us
I built this goddamn forest I build this garden for us, I built this goddamn forest I build this garden for us

Mondegreen of the Week

Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And shes buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

And there’s a wino down the road as we wind on down the road
I should’ve stolen Oreos Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The Jew will follow you a lot The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

Mondegreen of the Week

Groovin’, Young Rascals

Groovin’ . . . on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon

We’ll keep on spending sunny days this way
We’re gonna talk and laugh our time away
I feel it comin’ closer day by day

Life would be ecstasy, you and me and Leslie endlessly . . .

Groovin’ . . . on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon
