I heard someone sing "Trouble with a wide-tread tire" for "Come on, baby, light my fire." And "You build up my fences" for "You fill up my senses" (personally, I prefer the former).

    I kind of like, "You filled out my census" but that's just me.

      But getting back again to the beer jingles - this was another New England one:

      I don't know where I'm going
      But I remember where I've been
      So take a glass, my friend
      And talk to me of home . . . . . of home.

      I think it was Narragansett beer.

        Yes, back to beer:

        Hey! Get your cold beer!
        Hey! Get your Ballantine beer!
        Ballantine, Ballantine beer.

        and from the same company:

        Who is the ale man?
        He could be you!

          I'm so behind! I spent too much time on the Disney thread! There is a website for misheard lyrics and a number of books (Scuse me while I kiss this guy). My favorite is from some metal song (My mind is racin but my body's in the lead) that was misheard as "My mind is bacon but my body's Sizzlean.

          That McDonald's song just gave me a flashback!

          How about:

          Toffifay, it's too good for kids
          Toffifay was made for grown-ups
          It's all the candies you like in one
          Toffifay it's too good for kids

          And the very creepy:

          Whatever it is I think I see becomes a Tootsie roll to me.

                To Laughing Goddess:

                I regret to report that Thompson's Clam Bar has been gone for several years now. They're putting condos down next to the harbor now.

                  Nobody (with the exception of Jimmy Dean) doesn't like SaraLee.

                  I forgot all about the cigarette ads----LSMFT



                  Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco -- but that's not what we said in 5th grade.


                  C'mon Grampy,

                  You know what LSMFT really meant......loose straps me flabby (fill in the blank).


                  It is amazing how such obscure knowledge is so universal. And I do recall that "Anticipation, it's making me wait" became "Constipation, etc.", and the Chiquita Banana tune had something to do with killing your teacher the "easy way." Meanwhile, the McDonald's theme went something like this:
                  McDonald's was our kind of place,
                  until we burnt the place.
                  We burnt the whole place down.
                  We even burnt the clown.

                  I'm sure that as kids we mangled any number of jingles.


                  We learned it:
                  McDonald's is their kind of place.
                  It's such a big disgrace.
                  Hamburgers in your face.
                  They steal your parking place.
                  McDonald's is their kind of place.
                  A nasty Change of Pace.
                  McDonald's is their kind of place.

                  Parenthetically, or might that be (Parenthetically....)

                  It's not a food song, but I am headin' towards 46 and my 10-year-old still sings that timeless gigglin' favorite, "Jingle Bells/Batman Smells."

                  Plus, there is apparently a young girl singer who had a big song sometime recently that contained the line: "Why does everything have to be so complicated?" (Or words to that effect. . .) My son and his compadres sing it: "Why does everybody have to be so constipated?"

                  I know this is vague, but gimme a break -- I'm a jazz-and-classical person, mostly. Sushi or somebody more "in tune" with current pop music may be able to help this be less vague.

                        I remember the Hamm's beer contest. The winner got a television set.

                            I'm dreaming of a tight Christmas
                            Just like the one I used to know.
                            There's no pot to piss in,

                            The Holsum bakers
                            Are baking bread

                            And that is the reason
                            It tastes so good
                            Like oven baked Holsum Bread should

                            It's just like grandmother's bread used to be
                            Because they use grandma's recipe

                                    McDonald is our kind of place!
                                    Hamburgers in your face!
                                    French fries right up your nose
                                    Mustard between your toes

                                    Ketchup running down your back
                                    I want my money back
                                    Before I have a heart attack

                                    That's how we sang it in the sixties in Colorado. Are these regional?

                                              Now -- does anyone remember the record that carried the Chiquita song a lightyear further - "Juanita Banana" by The Peels? The soprano lead-in was used to divide segments (it was Grandmother's voice) in "Batman And His Grandmother" by Dickie Goodman. I have both the 45s,lucky me.

                                                      Yes, and the variation about killing your teacher "the easy way."

                                                      I don't think anyone has mentioned "Tasty Cake cakes and pies."


                                                      While we're on kid songs and teacher mortality:

                                                      Ta-ra-ra boom-dee-ay
                                                      Our teacher passed away
                                                      We threw her in the bay
                                                      We fished her out next day
                                                      And Pewww!
                                                      She smelled like saurkraut!!!!

                                                        Let's not forget:

                                                        Row, row, row your boat,
                                                        Gently down the stream,
                                                        Take your teacher,
                                                        Throw her in,
                                                        And listen to her scream.


                                                        And


                                                        Don't throw stones at your mother,
                                                        It might make her poor heart break,
                                                        Don't throw stones at your brother,
                                                        Not even to keep him awake,
                                                        Don't throw stones at your sister,
                                                        It might make a hole in her head,
                                                        Don't throw stones at anybody,
                                                        Chuck a brick at your teacher, instead!


                                                        And the song we always sang on the last day of school before summer vacation:

                                                        School's out, schools'out,
                                                        Teacher let the monkeys out,
                                                        One jumped in,
                                                        One jumped out,
                                                        One jumped in the teacher's mout.

                                                          Oh mama don't you fix me no more meatloaf,

                                                          I want some fun piled on a bun
                                                          I want a Manwich please.

                                                          Not sure about that first line, but it's something about meat loaf. Can you imagine a reasonably intelligent person passing up homemade meat loaf and mac and cheese for a Manwich???


                                                          Fun piled on a bun doesn't sound appetizing, I agree.

                                                            School's out, schools'out,

                                                            One jumped in,

                                                            The rest of the first song you mentioned goes:

                                                            Three days later, floatin' down the Delaware
                                                            In her dirty underwear
                                                            THought she had another pair
                                                            Three days later, eaten by a polar bear
                                                            That's how the polar bear died.

                                                            Touching, isn't it?
