Story about this misheard lyric by: DooWop Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Doo

In show-and-tell in elementary some of us would bring in old 45s and play them. At an adjacent desk Roger would chant this line. None of us then had a clue as to the chorus lyrics. REM put out a brilliant cover of this tune in 1993 ( as a counterweight to "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight" ) and it is easier to conprehend - even with their Georgia accents which can be confusing at times (I'm a Midwesterner, so if I stepped on anyone's toes I didn't mean to. This is not a slam).

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The Lion Sleeps Tonight"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
In the jungle, the mighty jungle,
The lion sleeps tonight.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Contrary to persistent stereotyping, lions inhabit open country, such as grasslands and areas of scattered trees and/or shrub, such as savannas, often semi-arid regions. They do NOT live in jungles.
