Happy Fourth of July!!! Before there are BBQs and fireworks let there be Muppets and Mondegreens ...
The Star Spangled Banner seems to be fertile ground for misheard lyrics. From the personal "Jose, can you see" to the fruity "Grapefruit through the night".
Speaking of Fruit, here’s one from Home on the Range: "Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the cantaloupe play".
And finally, the Pledge of Allegiance, not just for people anymore: "I led the pigeons to the flag…"
Thank you to our friend Harry Althaus for the National Anthem mondegreen (your surprise is on its way), and to the rest of you have a healthy, joyous and safe Fourth!!
