6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 16, 2000
Format: Paperback
Gavin Edward... who authored two books of misheard lyrics before, penned the funniest Christmas carol book ever!
True Line: Noel, Noel, born is the king of Israel. Misheard Line: Noel, Noel, Barney's the king of Israel.
True Line: Children, go where I send thee. Misheard Line: Children, go warm and sandy.
You get the picture. The book is filled with hilariously misheard lyrics, that weird line in "Silent Night" that never sounded quite right, but you never questioned. Hilarious!

It was purchased as a gift for a friend who loves music, and was a big hit!
It came earlier than expected!

all these books on mondegreens are worth it if you like music.
especially if you like to make fun of people who can't
"get" the lyrics.

it is a VERY quick read, but i already knew the lyrics!!!
