As a lifelong fan of music, I have always had a thing for lyrics. I hear a song I like and I need to learn the words immediately so I can scare the neighbours with my singing! But occasionally there are songs I hear and think "Surely that can't be right." This happened when I was innocently singing along to Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison many years ago. The line (which I shall not repeat for worry of causing offence at the rudeness!) came out quite naturally, but made no sense and was....well....filthy! After I worked out what the real words were I realised that mis-hearing lyrics is something I do quite often, occasionally causing hilarity among my friends.
It might be that I am easily amused, but misheard lyrics have been known to make me cry with laughter and as we can all use a little laughter from time to time, I compiled a list of my favourite "mondegreens". Please read, and let me know what some of your favourite misheard lyrics are!
