Subject: RE: Spoonerism's in songs- Examples
Likewise (mondegreen, not spoonerism) the lyrics of Carly Simon's "You're so vain" often have the phrase quoted "scarf which was Afric cut" - I am sure it should be Apricot. But the UK transcriber was probably not aware of US pronunciation. (Here we say "AYpricot" not AHpricot)
