Have you ever discovered that your version of a song's lyric is a bit different to the actual one? For example, a lot of people heard Police's "Message in a Bottle" as “A year has passed since I broke my nose.” But Police sang it as “A year has passed since I wrote my note.”

When this happens, it's known as a mondegreen.

It also applies to mishearing or misinterpreting words or phrases other than from songs.

The OED offers the delightful word: quatsch (noun) - I like the sound of it.

They say it means nonsense or rubbish and is frequently used as an exclamation to express dismissal of a statement.

It could be very useful in an election year.

How about this one? ultracrepidarian

It's a noun meaning: a person who gives opinions and advice on matters outside their knowledge

Love it. Social media seems to have a plethora of ultracrepidarians.
