Sing Along with Disco Mom: Monday Greens!

Today we are correcting mondegreens. They're common enough but still good for a chuckle. I got some of these from TV shows, commercials, websites and a day calendar I saw at Barnes and Noble once. These are seriously too fun.

Your task is to:
  • Identify the incorrect lyrics
  • Provide the correct ones
  • Name the song and artist if you can
1. "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy..."
2. "Hold me closer, Tony Danza..."
3. "Rock the cat spa, rock the cat spa..."
4. "Outhouse, in the middle of the street..."
5. "The heart of rock n' roll is Topeka..."
6. "The girl with colitis goes by..."
7. "The ants are my friend, they're blowin' in the wind ..."
8. "Don't go around tonight; well, its bound to take your life; there's a bathroom on the right."
9. "I see a Renoir and I want to paint it black..."
10. "Edith was troubled by a horrible ass, yeah yeah yeah yeah..."
11. "I shop and share it (but I did not kill the deputy)..."
12. "Gloooooooooooooria, undigested bagels..."

BONUS: "She's got - thirty days to die..."
