"Roundabout," Yes
Misheard Lyrics:
One mile over we'll be there and missing you.

Twenty four before my love you'll see.
I'll be there with you.
Original Lyrics:
One mile over we'll be there and we'll see you.
Ten true summers we'll be there and laughing too.
Twenty four before my love you'll see.
I'll be there with you.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: I've been waiting so long for posting this one. Several times ago, a radio announcer sing this song as "I'll be a roundabout". I think this is the longest coda ever in the world, but not, not longer than The Beatles' "Hey Jude", it ended with acoustic guitar for several seconds with Scottish folk music influence. About this song: While "Roundabout" is not longer for the longest coda ever in the world than The Beatles' "Hey Jude", but this song runs at 8 minutes and 35 seconds. While "Hey Jude" is 7 minutes and 21 seconds. The Jon Anderson and Steve James Howe-penned song was peaking at #13 on Billboard's Pop Chart. Make them the most successful progressive rock single of all time and their experiment hit before "Owner of a Lonely Heart" was more successful for them with topping on this chart. Its lyrics are about their love in a roundabout.
