: : Who ya gonna call? - Phone's busted
: A misheard lyric is called a mondegreen.
: Until about 2 years ago,
in Bad Moon Rising by Creedence I heard a lyric as "There's a bathroom on the

I knew someone who misheard "Young hearts be free tonight" from Young Turks by Rod Stewart as "Your horse runs free tonight."
