Roger Whittaker's, "O Tannenbaum"
Misheard Lyrics:
Nine out of ten are Venice nights.
Original Lyrics:
Nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
I'm told the German line that I "misheard" means "No, also in winter when it snows." Since that doesn't say too much by itself, I'm also told that it is in answer to the previous line which means something like "You make greenery not only in summertime". Remember, the song is addressing a Christmas Tree!
