Looking through a friends songbook last night .....

In the chorus of 'I wish I was back in Liverpool'

appeared 'There ain't no trees, no centipedes ...'

well,I THOUGHT it was 'scented breeze', but I prefer

centipedes.

I must admit (while blushing) that i thought it was centipedes for years. It is a better line.

When does a mondegreen become a variant?

I mentioned it in my 'Skipper Jan Rebek' thread

Last weekend "Who's the king of the fighting Dutch?" became "Who's the king of the fighting ducks!!!"

Apparently coined around 1954, the term mondegreen has yet to make it into the major dictionaries (OED and Webster's.
