Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
Not exactly a song lyric -- My mother was once working in her rose garden when a thorn embedded itself in her ankle, causing painful swelling that went on for days. "That which we call a rose," she mused, "by any other name would swell my feet."

She was quite a wonderful piece of work, my Mom.
