Bill Haley's, "Rockin' Through the Rye"
Misheard Lyrics:
Max Welton's braes are bonny...
Original Lyrics:
Let's rock this way, says Bonnie...
Actually, I believe I am nearer the mark. IDK who "Max Welton's Braes" are, but it does indeed sound like he is singing that. It sure as hell isn't "Let's rock this way, says Bonnie", which is what every lyrics site insists it is. I think THEY are mishearing it!
Ray Ellington's, "Rockin' Through the Rye"
Misheard Lyrics:
Max Welton’s braes are Bonny
Original Lyrics:
Let's rock this way, says Bonnie...
Max Welton’s braes are Bonny was sung in the goon show by the resident band in the '50s. The Ray Ellington quartet I am pretty sure.
