Subject: Ten R & R Mondegreens

[Misunderstood lyrics like the following were given the name "Mondegreens"  
by Sylvia Wright in the 1950s.  (If you've never heard that term before,  
you'll just have to trust me for the moment.  I'll put together a little  
explanation of mondegreens in the near future.)  Anyway, the gimmick here is  
to figure out the song and original lyric from the mondegreen; the artist's  
name is included as a hint...  -psl]
