I don't know about anyone else, but I am terrible for hearing something and going "Did he/she just say/sing .......?" Only for everyone to look at me funny and go "No."
A writer named Sylvia Wright apparently wrote an article in 1954 admitting she once mis heard the lyrics of a Scottish folk song.
They sang 'They hae slain the Earl of Moray/ And laid him on the green."
She heard 'They hae slain the Earl Amurray/ And Lady Mondegreen.'
Which is perfectly understandable if you ask me, though from someone who can hear Macy Gray sing 'Though I try to hide it/ It's clear/ I wear goggles when you are not near', that's hardly a great shock.
My daughter's friend whilst listening to Rock the Casbah by The Clash swore blind Strummer was indeed singing, 'Sharif don't like it/ Wash yer dashboard, wash yer dashboard'.
The theme from Flashdance 'Take your pants down/ Make it happen'
Message in a Bottle by The Police 'A year has passed since I broke my nose.' or indeed So Lonely which sounds to me like 'I feel Sue Lawley, Sue Lawley.'
And one of those you had to be there moments whilst discussing our up coming college performance someone said "But Mercutio is the only one who's got ......" And I said "Red, did you just say Mercutio's the only one who's got a trombone?" I never found out what Red actually said because everyone just looked at me then pretended I couldn't possibly have asked such an inane question.
Please feel free to join me in confessing your stupidity at any time.
