Subject: RE: Spoonerism's in songs- Examples
I think there may be a difference between a "spoonerism" - which would be the singer muffing a line (whether intentional or not) and a mondegreen, where the error is on the part of the listener. There are whole web-pages of mondegreens out there - some of them are pretty hilarious. Typing "mondegreen" in a search engine will yield many.
