The New York Yankees played Fenway Park favorite “Sweet Caroline” after the Boston Marathon bombing this week. Secretary of State and former Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry remembered it a little differently while testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
He can never set foot in Boston again. RT @RosieGray: John Kerry just called Sweet Caroline "Sweet Adeline."

Video of Kerry’s gaffe at the Washington Free Beacon.
I bet John Kerry's favorite baseball team is the Boston "White Sox," too. #SweetAdeline

Plenty of Twitterers are imagining Kerry’s other embarrassing (and hilarious) mondegreen moments.

I imagine John Kerry walking down the hall, humming that catchy hit from The Knack: "Muh-muh-muh my Desdemona…"
