Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
dorareever, I didn't know English very well either (we spoke German at home)when I and my brother just older, instead of singing "We praise thee, oh, God for the son of thy love", etc, soulfully sang, "You crazy old God".

I'll never forget the flabbergasted look on my very religious mother's face.

I remember we also sang lustily, "Rass q the pear ishing". My poor mother.
