Season's Monde-Greetings!

A while back, I wrote about the wonderful world of misheard lyrics, a.k.a. Mondegreens, which come about when you can’t quite understand the words to a song, but your mind fills in familiar, if non-sensical, words and phrases, often with hilarious results.

It was recently brought to my attention that this festive season, which is so full of wonderful music, is also rife with Mondegreen mischief. Hark! 😉

Hark, The Herald Angels Sing!

Your turn, music nerds — if you know of any I’ve missed, add them in comments!
