Gladly, The Cross-Eyed Bear

source unknown

Mondegreen is the word for when you misinterpret or mishear a phrase, like a line in a poem or a lyric in a song, in a way that gives it a different meaning.

‘Poetry is always a dying language but never a dead language.’
- Robert Smithson, ‘A Sedimentation of the Mind’, 1968.
