Botched Holiday Songs

FILE - This Dec. 4, 2013 file photo shows the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in New York. It's that time of year: holiday music time. And with holiday music comes all the strange and twisted things we sometimes think we're hearing. Mondegreens, the moniker for misheard words in song, aren't restricted to holiday standards, of course, but the old-timey language of some seems to serve as a botched-lyric magnet.
