Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
Karen & I have long had trouble with "Oh Cumberland"--- We think it is something like ;
   " Fire in the Gas Fault, LA freeway" in the first line, but cannot be certain !! Anyone help ?? (That'll teach us to try learning from CDs !!)    Meanwhile;

   The Jamaicans are a resourceful race,able to make a sandwich from a beer -can ! " Hey, Mon ! I'm hongry ! Gimme a beercan sandwich !"

For years,as a child,I struggled with " Good King Wensless Last Looked Out" and " Syree Lives A Goodly Gence". But I'm OK now.
