Story about this misheard lyric by: Kjstech

For the past 26 years I swore it was satyrs and when I was younger in the 90’s I thought that had something to do with sultans so whenever I watched Aladdin, I thought of this song when the sultan was on screen.

Why They're Funny:
These eight lines, which appear during the bridge, are basically scat singing (and are sequentially echoed instrumentally). They just sound funny when sung. When Weird Al parodied this song into "Grapefruit Diet", he used actual words in these lines.
