COMING SOON: "Maidengreens"

I've heard a lot of music in my lifetime. I've also MISheard a lot of music in my lifetime. Because of my possible deafness (damn loud rock music!) or my utter stupidity, I've decided to add a new series to this site. I'm calling it "Maidengreens." This will be my version of "mondegreens." For those of you who aren't familiar with that term, a "mondegreen" is a misheard song lyric or misinterpretation of a song lyric. Mondegreens get their name from the mishearing of "laid him on the green" as "Lady Mondegreen" in an old Scottish ballad. My friends and I have heard some pretty stupid stuff in songs over the years, and I thought it would be fun to share.

Please feel free to post your own misheard lyric experiences in the comments section!
