I recently heard a song where for a long time I thought "the land and shore" as "the Atlantic shore." I kept listening for a reference to the Pacific.

I can't get out of my head,
the mondegreen described by Catspaw49, God be good to him,
not long before he passed.

He was in fact being treated by the oncology nurses at the time.
And something came up about Lorde's hit single 'Royals.'

In the choruse, Lorde sings,
"You can call me Queen Bee ... "

and if you recall Spaw's post, one of the nurses
was absolutely positively convinced that this line went,

"You can call me Green Bean"

I really miss that ...

Caught (accidentally) a line from the opening credits to Happy Days:

Goodbye crazy guys!

There's a discussion on Fiddles in Scotland about Scottish and Irish tunes that are played in both Scottish and Irish sessions (many tunes have two names - a Scottish one and an Irish one!)
I did have a chortle at one which was a Strathspey (Scottish dance) which had the Irish title Graf Spee!!!!

Ok this one just happened: I found I had a French version of I met her in Venezuela, in which I heard the line Her parents delivered grain (ses parents livraient du grain). Looked up the words... That line was Separating the chaff from the grain (Séparant l'ivraie du grain).

The two are completely pronounced the same.

The Chemical Worker's Song, aka Process Man, includes a line usually sung as "I've worked and breathed among the fumes that trail across the sky". I have also heard it sung as "I've worked and breathed ammonia fumes that trail across the sky", which seems to me to make better sense. But which did Ron Angel actually write?

Listen to Ron Angel on Chemical Workers Song - Ron Angel (original version). He sings 'among the fumes'.

Joe, that cracked me up.

Looking up words to sing today I found that Samson fought 1000 battles, not where the crimson fell and lost as I've heard it all my life, but wearing crimson flannel drawers.

Remember the '60s song Incense and Peppermints by the group Strawberry Alarm Clock? There's a line throw your pride to one side which I always thought was:

Throwing up by the wayside.

And so it goes...
