The Red and the Mondegreen

Misheard lyrics to Christmas songs are immortalized as mondegreens.

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing

Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the
New York King.
Peace on earth and
then he smiles;
Goddamn sinners reckon so.


Joyful oily nations, rise;
Join the triumph of
disguise.
With
the jelly toast proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.
Peace on earth and mercy mild;
Goddamn sinners wreck a child.
 

Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.
Peace on earth and mercy mild;
God and sinners reconciled.

Joyful all ye nations, rise;
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th' angelic host proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.
Peace on earth and mercy mild;
God and sinners reconciled.
