Archives for category: Top lists

Herbs got me thinking this time…

  1. Sloe boat to China
  2. A stitch in thyme saves nine
  3. Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
  4. The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but Vermouth
  5. Refreshes the parsley other beers can’t reach.
  6. Dill death do us part
  7. The seven sages of man
  8. A bunch of chives
  9. Between the chervil and the deep blue sea
  10. Keep calm and tarragon

Just a quick list for today. Inspired by a piece on BBC News Online, here are my favourite misheard song lyrics (I actually made up the first one to tease a friend years ago. She fell for it.)

#misheard lyrics

  1. I just died in your arms tonight, it must have been something I ate (Cutting Crew, I just died in your arms)
  2. Row row row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily merrily merrily merrily, life’s a butter dream (traditional song)
  3. Every time you go away, you take a piece of cheese with you (Paul Young, Every time you go away)
  4. With logs of the fire, and fish on the tree (Cliff Richard, Mistletoe and Wine)
  5. Those who find themselves religious, sit down next to me (James, Sit Down)
  6. And did I once hear a version of Fairy Tale of New York that said ‘you’re cheap and you’re haggard’….

OK, so I like my lists.
