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!

History is the lies of the victors coupled with the delusions of the defeated. It is an imagined certainty created at the point where the imperfection of memory meets the inadequacy of documentation.

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.
