Story about this misheard lyric by: Birmingham bear

My granny had this single - she bought it when she came back from Spain that year and she'd sing it with the line above misquoted. I always assumed until about ten minutes ago that that was the correct line. My granny died a few years ago and I think I will always sing that line wrong in memory of her.
