Story about this misheard lyric by: Mandy Flowers

The misheard lyrics are how I sung it as a kid. Then one day at school, our music teacher asked who knew the second verse after we'd sung the first. I raised my hand and sang the words as above (they are the second verse). Boy did the class get a good laugh at me!
