mondegreens - - The Archive of Misheard Lyrics is just plain fun.

This term was coined when an author was referring to hearing "upon the green" as "mondegreen". Malachi McCourt, brother of Frank who wrote Angela's Ashes, titled his autobiography A Monk's Swimmin' which is how the little Irish boys heard the line from the Ave Maria/Hail Mary "blessed are thou amongst women".

Another mondegreen site: Jon Carroll ... mondegreens.
