The Red and the Mondegreen

Misheard lyrics to Christmas songs are immortalized as mondegreens.

Good King Wenceslas

Good King Wences' car backed out
On the feet of heathens

When the snow lay round about,
Deep and crisp and even.

Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring wine and gruel.

Good king wants his applesauce
At the feast this evening

When the snow lay round about,
Deep and crisp and even.

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about,
Deep and crisp and even.

Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel.

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about,
Deep and crisp and even.
