    I'm reviewing this because if you happen to come across a copy, check the credits in the back. I submitted a lyric to this book and it was published. The author sent me an autographed copy when it was released so my name appears in the credits at the end. Just an interesting bit of trivia. The misheard lyrics are mostly amusing. Mine was Seal's "Kiss from a Rose"

    Have you ever had the experience of discovering, after years of hearing a song, that you were seriously mistaken as to what the lyrics were? This is a common experience, dubbed a "mondegreen" by this author, who had always, when hearing an old Irish ballad that spoke of the hero dying "and they laid him on the green" as "and Lady Mondregreen" (presumably, his lover, who died with him.) This book is a compendium of misheard lyrics sent to the author by various readers. Some of them are hilarious (from Annie Lennox, "It feels just like I'm walking on propane gas" instead of "...walking on broken glass", for instance.) But far too many of them are just nowhere near as funny, and/or incomprehensible how anybody could manage to mangle then lyrics into the form given. The book's good for more than a few chuckles and just a few laugh-out-louds, but overall I have to say I was disappointed.

    Why I read this book: Gregory pointed our group to a nice essay on Science Fiction and Futurism on author Gavin Edwards's blog; from there, I found about this book (and Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy) and was pleased to find that my library had them.I enjoyed this book; it was a nice, lightweight change of pace while I was working my way throughDark Integers and Other Stories. (I loved Dark Integers, but it's not my idea of light reading.) I'm tempted to give this book only 3 stars, because I don't think it'll have much re-read value for me; on the other hand, it did make me laugh aloud several times.It's worth mentioning that this book has nice illustrations by "Gregory ('Seth') Gallant", and a convenient index.After this, I read the author's earlier book,Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy.

    If you have ever sung the wrong lyrics to a song or laughed when someone else did, the is a great book full of laughs. Might even spawn an idea for a new song lyric. Elton John: You're car just peed in your penthouseThe Hues Corporation: Oh I'd like to know where you got the nose fromPaul Simon: Mama don't take my cordless phone away

    These misheard lyrics books still crack me up, even though I've lost track of how many times I've read them over the years!
