What is the word when you sing the wrong lyrics, humorously, to a song?


Answer by  pyritejenny (347)

A Mondegreen is a mishearing and a misinterpretation, often humorous. It was named by American writer Sylvia Wright in 1954, who heard: "And Lady Mondegreen" instead of the words "And laid him on the green," in a folksong lyric.
