Citrus Fiesta (beeblue)

Citrus Fiesta (beeblue)

naughty lemon by bb


I thought it really quite absurd
(and way too weird) when I heard
the 70s band Hot Chocolate sing
about the very strangest thing –
wild lemony love in Cadillacs,
the joys of lemons in the sack!

One day it dawned it wasn’t ‘lemons’
of which they sung, but rather ‘heaven’s’
and so the song proved less obscene,
and my mishearing, a Mondegreen


Original lyrics here –


Poet and blogger beeblue has presented me with a mondegreen citrus poem and picture – haha – which fits in nicely with a previous blog post.

Thanks beeblue πŸ™‚

    1. I agree – Tipota, couldn’t have put it better myself. Love it, the whole kit and kabooble of idea, poem, title, etc. Laughed my head off.


  1. I nearly fell off my chair laughing when I read this. I can imagine you must have thought the lead singer of Hot Chocolate must have had a strange lemon fetish when you heard the song. Oooh. Ow. Gives a whole new meaning to squeezing fruit. Absolutely brilliant!

  2. haha, thanks, everyone – and yes, I did have a bit of brainstrain thinking of a suitable rhyming word for mondegreen :-D. Thanks, Gabe and Happy Australia Day, Aussies πŸ™‚

  3. I love it when that happens. When I was a child, everyone in our house was not surprised Lucille left Kenny Rogers…’four hundred children and a crop in the field’? Give the girl a break, Ken!

  4. Did you hear the news item that reported that a farmer in the flooded Lockyer Valley lost sixty thousand pigs? Later that was corrected to read ‘sixty sows and pigs’.
    Wonderful use of the monedegreen… but what’s so odd about lemons in the sack? Doesn’t everybody???
