A "mondegreen" is a misheard lyric; the word comes from the misunderstanding of an old ballad that included the lines "They hae slain the Earl O' Moray/And laid him on the green" as "They hae slain the Earl O' Moray/And Lady Mondegreen." I'll give you the garbled version, you provide the original. (The last one is a tribute to my sister, who could not be persuaded that she had heard it wrong.)
