The term spoonerism is named in honor of the Reverend William Archibald Spooner whose students used to write down all the instances of spoonerisms that he made.

The Lyrics:
The river is deep and the river is wide, Hallelujah!
Milk and honey on the other side, Hallelujah!
The river is weep and the river is dyed, Hallelujah!
Silk and money on the other hide, Hallelujah!
