"Candida"

And there was you and I
Why:
"You and I" is plural; therefore, the verb should be "were".

Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose"
The Lyrics:
Oh, I got wind my Jo's been dancing here in New Orleans In this smoke-filled honky-tonk they call the land of dreams Oh, here she comes a strutting in her birthday clothes Say, has anybody seen my sweet Gypsy Rose
Why:
Tony Orlando & Dawn's 1973 #3 hit, "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose" was the group's follow-up to the #1 smash, "Tie A Yellow Ribbon 'Round The Ole Oak Tree" and just like that song, "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose" harked back to a simpler time in music that many people wanted to go back to. It's a bluesy dance #, and it is loosely based on the story of Gypsy Rose, just like the Broadway and movie musical. But in this version, Tony Orlando plays the man whose one-time sweet 'Mary Jo' has gone down, as the third verse says, to New Orleans (a real place) to be a stripper, with "rings on her fingers and bells on her toes", at a smoke-filled honky-tonk joint.

Onomatopoeia in Lyrics:

"Knock Three Times"
The Lyrics:
Oh my sweetness
(Knock, knock, knock) means you'll meet me in the morning
Twice on the pipe (click, click) means you ain't gonna show.
Why:
The barely audible sound of knocking on wood is heard three times, while two taps on a plumbing pipe with a tool (likely a wrench) is heard twice.
Submitted by: MOR
"Knock Three Times"
The Lyrics:
Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
Why:
The word "knock," which is followed later by a knocking sound, is onomatopoeic.
Submitted by: Kathy

Bad Ringtone Choices:

"Knock Three Times"
The Lyrics:
Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me,
Mmmm, twice on the pipe if the answer is no.
(knock, knock, knock) Means you'll meet me in the hallway
Why:
This is the worst ringtone Senator Larry Craig could blare while being interrogated for soliciting sex in a men's room by means of foot taps and hand signals.
