Subject: Mondegreen
From: Mo the caller

One from the New Scientist
"WE CALLED a halt to religious mondegreens - misremembered religious phrases that still make an incongruous kind of sense (2 December 2006) - but couldn't resist the one Mary Maher has told us about. A friend's daughter, she says, recently started at a denominational school in Brisbane, Australia. Maher asked her what was different about it. She said that they say prayers in the morning and elaborated by reciting the one she had just learned: "Our Father which art in heaven, Allah be thy name.""

No,this was something my Dad remembered somebody genuinely believing to be the words of this Hymn from his schooldays.
However,I ought to have made that clear in the first place.Mea Culpa.

A mondegreen is when a phrase or word is honestly misheard and the brain fills in the next closest, possible thing. I think it's pretty unlikely that "going on before" was misheard as "left behind the door." Maybe that's how your dad heard it, but it isn't a mondegreen.

The classic: "Lady Mondegreen" for "Laid him on the Green." See?

This thread will go where it will, but then the thread title should be changed to "Religious Parodies V. Umptyzillion," and moved up top to the music section.

Happy Lent,

~Susan

if it was genuinely misheard and the gaps filled with comprehensibly credible homopohones it is a Mondegreen, however big a stretch. If it is a parody I guess it is a Maondegree or a degree of maon.

"Our father, who art in heaven,
Harold be thy name..."

At a burial - "Glory be to the Father and to the Son, into the hole he goes."

"What a friend we have in cheeses."

Well, not quite miss-hearing, as trying to make sense of a word that, in my 'simplicity' I did not understand -
Pity mice in Plicity.

Not that I knew where Plicity was, or why it was so bad for mice there.
