Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
As mentioned quite a long time ago in a different thread, Prof. Parsons the ex-Salt Town Poet, remains convinced that the second line of 'All The Good Times' is not 'The hunter has hung up his horn' but 'The hunter has swallowed his horse'.
And more recently the Duchess Of Winsford,now Programme Director at Radio Leighton in Crewe, was definitely under the impression that Elvis Presley, in his hit song 'Burning Love', was actually singing 'I'm a hunk of burning wood'. Quite why Mr Presley should be claiming to be a lump of charcoal remains unclear.
