upon my liar's chair

another of my favorite mondegreens is a deliberate one, in hurt by nine inch nails (and johnny cash), i misread "my sweetest friend" as:


what have i become,
my swedish friend?



as if he'd written the song to ingmar bergman, in spirit.

(johnny's version was on the radio tonight)

in a similar mishearing, i thought CCR's "sweet hitchhiker" was "swedish hiker".

Re: mondegreens
ha! that's great.

i don't know that i'd actually ever heard that song before, but since it was a billboard hit, it seems like i must have.
