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.

Marty Robbins', "Tonight Carmen"
The Lyrics:
In anguish and torment,
I've cursed as the night went
From darkness to dawn's golden light.
In anguish and torment,
I've nursed as the kite went
From darkness to dawn's golden light.
