I cannot not hear the first lines of "Tell Him" by the The Exciters (I know something about love, you've got to want it bad) as

"I know something about love, I've got a woman in bed"

Not a Mondegreen, but I only recently worked out that the line in Piano Man about putting "bread in my jar" referred to money, not you know, actual slices of bread. I couldn't work out why Billy Joel wasn't more annoyed about it.

I'm 36, no excuse.

'The guys at the bar
They put bread in my jar
And say
'Man, what are you doin' here?'

This we know because Mr. Thipu was a frequent patron of Max's Kansas City when Billy Joel was the piano man in that bar.
