A mondegreen is a misheard word or phrase in a song or poem. My kids invented a wonderful mondegreen. We put on the song Juke Box Hero, by Foreigner, and they loved it. They were singing and shouting out the words. When we listened carefully, we discovered they were singing "Juice Box Hero".
We tried to explain what a juke box is, but to no avail. So now the song will forever be known as "Juice Box Hero" in our household.
Here are some Christmas mondegreens and some very creative mondegreens from Artwiculators.
