(10 January 1999)
Joe Robins provides a pointer to another archive of misheard lyrics that I hadn't previously known about. It includes entertaining stories about how the submitters found out they were wrong.
I forgot to mention some other items I misheard for years:
Craig Kasper checks in with an intentional Mondegreen:
Used all my stand-in's cologne
Now he's not reading my part
Now he's got one of his own.
I guess it's more a parody or filk than a Mondegreen, but it's close enough to the original to be Mondegreenish, and I thought it was entertaining enough to mention.
