Mondegreens
A mondegreen is a misheard lyric that makes sense in and of itself, but does not match the meaning intended by the lyricist.

It is named after the following mishearing:

"They have slain the Earl of Moray
And Lady Mondegreen"

The actually second line is "And laid him on the green". There never has been a Scottish noblewoman called Lady Mondegreen.

Post your humorous mishearings here!

No attempts at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my hear a deep and burning hatred for the Tory Party … So far as I am concerned, they are lower than vermin.

Rolling Stones song "I don't leave your pizza burning. Never, never, never, pepperoni". For years i heard this on the radio until someone told me the name of the song was "beast of burden".

Auditory processing disorder which i have makes for some really interesting song lyrics.

The opening of 'Suicide Solution' by Ozzy Osbourne sounds like a weather forecast for the south of England.
