All of us who have tried transcribing lyrics can probably relate to this one:

the first time I heard Lucille by Kenny Rogers I cracked up when I heard the chorus as "You picked a fine time to leave me Loose Heel" which many a gal on a Saturday night Pubcrawling up from the Quayside in Newcastle has taken for her anthem for the night, shoe in hand.

Anyone else got any favourites on this theme?

Over at Musical Traditions is a collection of such gems from the Folk World, called Mondegreens, as you'll find out. Don't Knock, just walk on in.
