Story about this misheard lyric by: Brian

This is actually what my son thought it was when he was about 5 years old. I didn't know it until he was around 12, and when listening to this song, sked me why they were singing about a diaper. I guess songs about diapers are normal when you're 5? I laughed so hard. He's 16, and we still laugh together about that one.
