C...I often get irked by the same phenomenon with regards to the phrase "Buck Naked". I don't even know where the original term comes from (something to do with the woods and some deer I'm sure) but more often than not what you hear is "Butt Naked". This used to upset me very much because I had read the phrase and knew what it was supposed to be, but if you think about it, "Butt Naked" actually makes more immediate sense and impact on the imagination of the reader. Does anyone else have phrases that, through common usage, used to be one thing and became another? Any misheard lyrics?
