Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
Ok this one just happened: I found I had a French version of I met her in Venezuela, in which I heard the line Her parents delivered grain (ses parents livraient du grain). Looked up the words... That line was Separating the chaff from the grain (SÚparant l'ivraie du grain).

The two are completely pronounced the same.
