past participle of slay

Another way of saying "killed". And now, a funny example:

Oh, they have slain the Earl of Morray and Lady Mondegreen.

Originated from Sylvia Wright's mishearing of the 'Oh, they have slain the Earl of Morray and laid him on the green' line from the Scottish folk song, 'The Bonny Earl Of Morray'.
