Prairie Oyster has a new CD with the song Sweet, Sweet Girl To Me on it. This is their best album in a long time - Get it!

The last two lines of the chorus are:

Should have done right when I had my day;
Now I'm all alone and I have to pay.

The way Russell pronounces it, it sounds like:

Now I'm all alone and I have a toupe.

This one isn't much of a stretch, but when I first heard the song "This Endris Night," this is the way I 'heard' one verse:

The child then spake in his talking,
And to his mother did say,
"Yea, I am known as Heaven's king
Though I in cribbie lay."

I thought that seemed quaintly cutesyish -- to call a manger a "cribbie."

Then checking the DT here, I realize that what was acutally being sung was:

The child then spake in his talking,
And to his mother did say,
"Yea, I am known as Heaven's kind
Though I in crib be laid."

Good old Albert A Myers ...

I also remember being perplexed by a request to sing the song about the girl who was killed in a pub. We didn't sing any songs remotely like that. Eventually the requester said "you know, I shot my own true love in the room of the Swan".   Molly Bawn/Polly Vaughan ...I could never think of the song the same way after that.

I played a gig in Toronto a couple of years ago where this fellow came up to chat with me between sets and requested a song
called "Irish Machete".
"I haven't heard that one, but I'm intrigued," I answered. "How does
it go?"
He obligingly sang, "♫...Did ye ever go into an Irish Machete, where
whisky was plenty and money was scarce...♫"
"My dad used to sing one like that," I told him. "But his was called
Irishman's Shanty."
"Oh. But it had the same tune?" he asked.

OK, I'll admit this isn't a lyric mondegreen, but it still fits the category. And it cracked me up.

I was watching TV this afternoon when a commercial came on for a local video rental business. They showed VCR/DVD covers of various popular films as the announcer rattled off such genres as "Classic movies," "action flics," "porn films," "animated features," ... .

Whoa!!   Did the announcer really say "porn films"!!?

I was sitting there in astonishment, scratching my head trying to make sense of something I found rather incomprehensible for a local, mid-afternoon, broadcast TV ad. Could I have possibly mis-heard that category? The images of the DVD/VCR cases were small and quickly passed from the screen, so I couldn't see what movies they were showing as examples of "porn films."

If you're not quicker on the take than I am and haven't figured out my "mondegreen" by now, my strong hunch is that the3 announcer actually said "foreign films."

That makes more sense, don't ya think? §;-D

The Southern accent strikes again: I've been listening to the Red Clay Ramblers' version of "Kissing is a Crime" my entire life and have always thought the words were:

"Born to be a bitter girl and never kiss again . . . "

Until about a week ago when I saw the words in print for the first time and realized it was:

"Born to be a better girl . . . "

Which makes more sense (although "bitter" is not too far beyond reason), but I still feel oddly traumatized. I wonder what else on that album I've misheard.

Yesterday in a jam session one of the guys did a Gospel song that at first sounded for all the world like it began:

"When my toilet is over ... "

I wouldn't help thinking, "Shouldn't it be 'When my toilet RUNS over ... '?"

But since that concept didn't fit the rest of the lyrics, I figured he must have really been singing, "When my toil, it is over ... "

Turns out, the actual lyric is "When my toiling is over ..."

But with an opening line like that, I still think the song cries out for a parody along the lines of "When my toilet runs over."

Actually a pretty old mondegreen, but new to me. There's a song call "Christ Made a Trance" on a recent Waterson:Carthy CD where Martin writes:

The Passiontide carol Christ Made a Trance is a song which I have known for years. "Trance" is a piece of old usage of the word, used here to mean a narrow defile between two places - in this case life and death. It's a great example of apparently obsolete bits of language surviving in old songs.


What he didn't say is that when C Sharp collected it from Mrs Reservoir Butler, what he actually collected said:

"O God's in France all Sunday"

There's a pop ballad from the '80s that has a hook line in it that I've never been able to decipher no matter how often I hear the song. The refrain that contains this line is:

Tonight I need your sweet caress - Hold me in the darkness -
Tonight you ____ __ ___ ____ ___ ... .   
The words in the blanks always sound kind of like:
"Tonight you come on Breath's Love's nest." (or "bread's love's nest).   

And nothing it sounded like made any sense to me.

I finally checked "the google" for "lyrics: 'Tonight I need your sweet caress - Hold me in the darkness'" (since I didn't know the title and couldn't search for the line I wanted without a clue as to what those words were).

The song is titled "Hands to Heaven," and the lyrics are intelligible in some people's recordings, but not -- to me, anyway -- in the popular recording by Breathe.

The mondegreened line is actually,
"Tonight you calm my restlessness."

(I think Breathe kind of pronounces the line as "Tonaht you cahm mah restlussness."
Mystery solved.)

back in the 70's a gentleman called Norman Iles 'recontructed pagan carols' and other old songs.

His recontruction of the Hal-an-tow was based on 'hearing the folk club audience singing "God bless the Merry Moses and all her power and might-o"' I wish I could remember what amazing theory of Old Testament cross-dressing he came up with to explain this.

Unfortunately the line is actually 'Good bless Aunt Mary Moyses', Moyses or Moysey being a common Cornish surname.

Goodness only knows what he made of 'We are to the merry green woods to hunt the buck and hare-o'.

Not quite a mondegreen, but hilarious anyway! Cliff Richard's song was always sung thus among my associates of the time "All my life i've bin kissin; your left tit, 'cause yer right ones missin' OH BOY!
!
BUT the classic is by the ever great Bridie Gallaher who could make the telephone directory sound delightful if she sang it, on one of her early recordings, either "Moolight in Mayo" or "Girl from Donegal" sings "The Emigrants Letter" beautifully as always, but misconstrues a word. It is of course an emigration ballad, the lad has left his girl and family behind but is writing to console them and to reassure them that he is being treated well, and so he writes in high-falutin' english that he has "Lots of COMBUSTABLES piled on his plate" I rather think it Should be COMMESTIBLES, that is eatables, and not fire lighting material!!!
Now the strange thing is that every other recording of that song makes or remakes the same error, and I know a few!
