But first, here are some of the more famous mondegreens:
- Some people hear "Gladly, the cross-eyed bear" instead of the fine old hymn "Gladly The Cross I'd Bear".
- Then there's "There's a bathroom on the right," a mishearing of "There's a bad moon on the rise" from the old Creedence Clearwater song "Bad Moon Rising."
- A big one is "Excuse me while I kiss this guy," which is actually "Excuse me while I kiss the sky" from the Jimi Hendrix song "Purple Haze." (Supposedly Jimi was aware of this and occasionally sang it like that in concert).
- Of course there's "Round John Virgin," in the Christmas song "Silent Night."
- There's "You and me and Leslie," instead of "You and me endlessly," from the Rascal's song "Groovin'."
- Bob Dylan's in there too with "Dead ants are my friends, they're blowin' in the wind," instead of "The answer my friend, is blowin' in the wind."
- Then there's Jose Felician's famous "Feliz Navidad" that is often heard as "Police naughty dog."
- It even happens in everyday speak as well, as some people hear the "2 liter size" of Coke and Pepsi as "cheerleader size" instead.
