Profuse apologies people - I tried to move the Mondegreens thread to this forum, and ended up accidentally deleting it and can't recover it.

Please start again!

:-D So you're a mere mortal after all, Jenny :-)

Leith - yes, you can pick up that page but not the rest as far as I can see. Still, I've got the posts before it deteriorated into chat a bit.

'Yorz, yes I'm sad to say my inner goddess let me down :-(

Belle and Sebastian's

"/Me and the Major don't see eye-to-eye on a /number of things [..]"

but I heard

"/Me and the midget don't see eye-to-eye [..]"

Ok,in my defence, I am slightly deaf, but.......

Last night Mike and I were chatting about his part time work delivering curries for the local Takeaway.

The boss is named Mr Ahmed, but we call him Mr A. They were very busy over the weekend and thought Mike said " Mr Anus be coining it"
He claims he actually said " Mr A must be coining it"

You mean he wasn't bad-um-tish?

That was exactly what he was doing. Insufferable.

OK - not song lyrics, but where else do I post this?

Mrs McL: So, do you like the new bread I bought today?

Me: Yes, it's very tasty.

Mrs McL: It contains a meagre three.

Me: A meagre three what?

Mrs McL: A meagre three oils.

Me: Aaah...I see...

Recently, someone mentioned Dippity Do hair gel. I had the niggly feeling that the name featured somewhere in a Golden Oldie.
And it does! Thanks to Brian Matthew (BBC2) I found it:

The Move with Flowers In The Rain

"I'm just sitting watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain keeping me good"

NB: on the radio/telly it says: Brian Matthew selects more classics and rarities from pop's golden decade [60s], including a frequently forgotten track by Bob Lindt.

How does that work??

TV puff: "...the spine-tingling whore, Blair Witch" - wait,no - spine-tingling horror.

Why employ an American accent for that job?

There's also the classic little boy's version of the hymn, 'Gladly, my cross-eyed bear.'

I heard someone use the Alanis Morrisette misheard line "The cross-eyed bear that you gave to me" which made me spray water across my living room and giggle for the next ten minutes. I barely containing laughter while writing this. I think the context makes it so much funnier.

Again, not a song lyric: I heard the TV chap advertising an upcoming programme that seems to be called "Darts, Darts, Darts", although the accompanying images depicted terpsichorean pursuits.

Ah - "Dahnce, Dahnce, Dahnce", dahling.
