6th Mondegreens

  1. In a was discovered that all these years, I thought Billy Ocean has been singing "Caribou Queen"...I had no idea (from Heather).
  2. My favorite mondegreen is one The Hubs misheard. "That's what a goat is cool for" as opposed to the actual lyric "That's what I go to school for" from the song of the same name by Busted (from Lynn).
  3. I have always enjoyed singing "Too Hard to Handle" by the Black Crows. I was belting it out the other day in the car with my hubby, when he died laughing and asked me what I just said. I was happily singing "Hey little thing, let me light your candle cause mama I'm sure the handy man gets around. Awww, The handyman!" (from Kristin)


  1. I thought the same as Heather, until I read this post, and had to go look it up to see what it really was! I will grant that Caribou Queen made no sense...but hey, it's Billy Ocean.

  2. oh - and just as an amusing giggle: My verification word was "imetardi" it trying to tell me something?

  3. Kristin, I sing the exact same lyrics to that song! What are they, really??

  4. Caitlin: "Hey little thing let me light your candle cuz momma I'm sure hard to handle now, yes I am". At least, I'm pretty sure that's what it is - I even looked it up!
