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.

And the run through the breadfield
Little anymore happy they sprained

Here the toys are all talking
And if you run through the green field

But I am with my dreams
Time has gone over me
Remembering today
Pictures of old days
Discovering today
The secrets of my Age
I have brought up my children
Where the toys are not talking
And they run through the grey field
With the animals' happiness band
Memories are far from here
Time has gone over my time
But I am with my dreams
Time has gone... follow me
