    1. 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"

    2. Best if placed near the chair in the room with the showerI was given this copy of Gavin Edwards’ He’s Got the Whole World in His Pants along with one other title in this series as a gift. The answers is:a. So just how green was my mondegreen?b. Mondegreen grows the laurel.c. What color is British Racing mondegreen?d. Mondegreen: a misunderstood or misinterpreted word or phrase resulting from a mishearing of the lyrics of a song.e. All of the aboveAnd if you:a. Don’t find anything funny her [...]

    3. I registered a book at BookCrossing!BookCrossing/journal/14774081Wow, I actually knew most of the correct lyrics!

    4. 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 [...]

    5. 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 do [...]

    6. 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

    7. 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!
