Very Happy Dwayne & Jane should get together!

Y'know, I named my daughter Jane. It wasn't until after she was born that I found out about the song. Embarrassed

For 3 or 4 summers in a row, my friends and I went to Ontario Place whenever The Spoons were playing. I always sang along heartily ...


"don't forgive me when I'm wrong"


written as : don't forget me when I'm gone.


Did I mention that I sometimes sing very loudly. Embarrassed

Jon Carroll had a great column on Mondegreens once, I'll see if I can find it.

In "Mellow Yellow", I thought Bob Dylan was counting to 3 in German instead of saying "Quite rightly".

@jespah,
Leadfoot must have the rare Bob Dylan mono version.

Worth a small fortune nowadays.

There was several years as a kid that I wondered what a 'donzerly light' was in the National Anthem.

@Leadfoot,
Heh.

Oh yeah. I had a lot of misheard lyrics when I was a kid. I've forgotten them though, it's been so long.
