10th Mondegreens

  1. My husband always sings Blinded By the Light by Manfred Mann's Earth Band as “Blinded by the light, revved up like a DOUCHE, another runner in the night.” When really it’s “Blinded by the light, revved up like a DEUCE, another runner in the night.” (from Kim).
  2. Instead of "pour some sugar on me," I thought it was "pour some shook up ramen." I was young. We ate ramen noodles a lot at our house (from Heather).
  3. Dookie? Did she just say dookie? What a fall from cuteness my curly haired newly potty trained daughter has had. Every time she passes gas, "Dookie!" Wait...what? Cueme? Did you just say: "Cuse Me, Ooooh you mean excuse me?" Oh well, that's awesome, never mind (from K).
  4. When I was a kid, we had a tape (yes, cassette!) of Roger Whittaker's All-Time Heart-Touching Favorites, one of which was "Red Roses For a Blue Lady." Not only did I think he was singing about a woman who was *literally* blue, but I heard him sing "and if they do the trick / I'll hurry back to pick / your best wide-open forger wedding gown." I had no idea what "forger" might mean but I pictured a dress with a deep v-neck down to the waist. Turns out he was singing "your best white orchid for her wedding gown."(from E).
