Hold me closer, Tony Danza
Elton John and the star of Who’s the Boss? must be really good friends for the famous singer to belt the classic “Hold me closer, Tony Danza!” Wait—the song has nothing to do with hugging Tony? It’s about a tiny dancer?
Perhaps, you, too, have had such an epiphany as a kid, realizing that what you thought or heard as the lyrics to a song were ... not the lyrics whatsoever.
Misinterpreted song lyrics are a fairly common and usually hilarious phenomenon called mondegreens. A mondegreen is "a word or phrase resulting from a misinterpretation of another word or phrase that we hear—with amusing results."
