great misheard lyrics

I've heard lots of variations of the misheard lyric meme.

"There's a bathroom on the right"? Heard it.
"Let's pee in the corner"? Heard it.
"The dude I'm in"? Heard it.

But there is one that I heard recently that I hadn't heard before. Instead of "Smoke on the Water," someone quoted a lyric as "Slow Uncle Walter."

I like that.


  1. I like "We're gonna rock and roll all night / And part of every day" because it still makes sense.

    1. To be fair, "Let's pee in the corner" makes about as much sense as any real lyrics from R.E.M.

  2. This is a "mondegreen". It is named that because someone mistook the line "They have slain the Earl O' Moray, and laid him on the green" for "They have slain the Earl O' Moray, and Lady Mondegreen".
