Mondegreen Thursday, hard rock edition

I want to rock and roll all night
and part of every day.
--Kiss

The walls start shakin'
The earth was quakin'
My mind was achin'
And we were bacon.
--AC/DC

I haven't remembered, nor heard any new ones, and i didn't want to make them up....so i'm glad you've kept it going.

Actual, honest-to-god Mondegreen I enacted for years: "She's so pop-u-lar" (instead of "jeuax sans frontier") -- Kate Bush's background vocal in Peter Gabriel's "Games Without Frontiers"

Personal favorite that was told to me by a friend: "Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly / A girl with colitis goes by...." -- Beatles, LitS(wD)

Yeah, the "She's so pop-u-lar" was one for a friend of mine in college, too. And it really does sound like that--especially since, you know, what self-respecting rock star has lyrics in French?
