Subject: RE: Spoonerism's in songs- Examples
A Spoonerism is where the beginnings of two words are interchanged.

My mother used to do it all the time. Her best one was with the saying "that will keep the rats from gnawing" (an English saying, said when giving food to someone who is hungry)

It came out... "that will keep the gnats from roaring"
