"What A Difference A Day Makes"
Misheard Lyrics:
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't bestore me.
Original Lyrics:
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Edyth Bowen

For a long time I heard this and thought there must be a word 'bestore', and I wondered what it meant. Later when I heard it again as a grown-up, I suddenly realized the words were 'be stormy', not 'bestore me', and I suppose maybe there's no such word as 'bestore' after all.
