Joy to the world! The Lord has gum!

Tis the season for Christmas Mondegreens. Snopes has culled out a number of great ones, and there's also a book: "Deck the Halls with Buddy Holly."

Two that made me laugh out loud were: "Joy to the world! The Lord has gum!" and "Police got my dad!" (instead of "Feliz Navidad.")

Well, I certainly will be pointing my family towards this page when they get on my case for busting out laughing during Christmas service. (The *Lord* has *gum*!)

I also thought that it went "Later on we'll perspire/As we drink by the fire" --because hey, that's Christmas. At least I'm not alone. Thanks for pointing to this.

We used to sing "Police Stop My Car" instead of Feliz Navidad. That was totally funny until that song was playing in our car when we did get pulled over by the cops... The irony was quite hilarious though!

I really liked Good King Wences' car backed out on the feet of heathens!

Shouldn't God just be expected to have gum?

I like "Round John Virgin, margarine child." Hee. It certainly conjures up an image.
