Misheard song lyrics

The song Jet Airliner by Steve Miller Band was on the radio the other day, and I heard my sweetie sing, "going down to the lineup", when the true lyrics were actually, "big ol' jet airliner". This really made me giggle. The word for something misheard is "Mondegreen". I think we have all been guilty, or at least know someone who has, misheard what is being sung. Please share in the laughter, and tell us your stories of misheard song lyrics!

thanks to an early episode of Never Mind The Buzzcocks where the team where supposed to be guessing the lyrics to a song clip & instead made up their own, the opening line of Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights still sounds like "Up on the windy windey moors, sweet Roland fall in Brie"
