Story about this misheard lyric by: Punky

This was a few years ago, when they showed that 'Pure Funk' music compilation commercial non-stop. There were clips of a bunch of songs that were on the cd. My little sister watched way too much tv, so she would always mimick the commercials. So we are driving in the car one day and my sister starts to sing all the little clips on the commercial. But then, instead of saying 'superfly' in the song Superfly, she said 'single file!'. It was hilarious. That's how we sing that song now.

Songs That Open With Their Titles:

"If I Were Only A Child Again"
Opening Lines:
If I were only a child again. No one's ever been so good to me since then.
