Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
Is this a Mondegreen or did someone record it this way?
Dougie Maclean's "Caledonia" IN THE DT contains an error in the 2nd verse which always makes me laugh when I see it, or even hear it, as it seems several people must have got their lyrics from here!
The line should be:
"with conscience flying in the wind"
The DT has it as "with coat-tails flying in the wind"!
If you don't believe me, listen to the man himself, at 2mins 15secs into the video.
