Mondegreens: misheard song lyrics

This is my favorite new word, I don't understand the etymology (monde=world, "green world"??) but I didn't know there was a word for this concept until my hubby (N) told me today. Here are some links to funny sites that collect examples:

"All Time Funniest 100 Lyrics" at (homonym for "kiss the sky" as in " 'scuse me while I..." in Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze")

"The Misheard Lyrics Hall of Fame"

Funny Pages blog

"Blinded by the Light" lyrics
