Lady mondegreen...

There this one song that I love, love, love, but even though I know the singer's actually saying "the clocks are on strike" (probably referencing Auden's poem 'Funeral Blues'), I always hear "the clucks are on strike". And it makes me giggle, almost every time. I just get this vision of Gonzo, Camilla and the other chickens, refusing to go on stage. Does anyone else have lyrics they persistently mishear? Did you discover your mistake yourself or was there someone else there to point it out?
