Cast of 'Bjorn Again Live''s, "Dancing Queen"
Misheard Lyrics:
Dancing queen
Feel the beat from the tangerine, oh yeah
You can dance
You can jive
Having the time of your life.
Original Lyrics:
Dancing queen
Feel the beat from the tambourine, oh yeah
You can dance
You can jive
Having the time of your life.

The Story....

My sister and I took our mother for her birthday to see "Bjorn Again" last month. She had always loved ABBA and was the music that made her the happiest. So we had a great time singing and dancing during the show. But when we heard our mom sing 'tangerine' in the lyric, I just couldn't believe it. But the lyrics didn't matter as much as the feeling and the music, proven after seeing my mother smiling so big while she's singing about a fruit making a beat. Probably my biggest laugh all year.
