We’ve all done it. We’ve all sung along to a song, or been confused by the lyrics, only to realize later that we misunderstood the lyrics in the first place. This is called a mondegreen. A “mondegreen” is “a word or phrase that results from a mishearing of something said or sung” (Merriam-Webster, 2013). Per Merriam-Webster (2013), the word mondegreen comes “from the mishearing in a Scottish ballad of ‘laid him on the green’ as ‘Lady Mondegreen'”.
In honor of “Lady Mondegreen”, DirectLyrics.com has created this infographic that lists the top 10 mondegreens.
