Thread Name: What are the worst lyric screwups you've
Subject: RE: What are the worst lyric screwups you've
(Wow, I haven't visited the mudcat in a really really long time, but I stopped in to get the address for a friend, and saw this and had to post..)

I am a huge steeleye span fan, my Dad got me into them when I was little, but my husband (who has great taste in all other things) hates them. (He likes their music, the crazy man just can't stand Maddy's voice)

There is a Steeleye song called "Elf Song", the lyric to which is:

"I heard a bonny cow low over the lea"

My husband hears..

"Robin Hood's an outlaw underneath the sea"

Go figure.. :)
