Story about this misheard lyric by: OrangeXenon54

This song always is on the Muzak at the place I work, and it was so quiet I couldn't understand what he was singing. I kept hearing "I ate a gumdrop, I ate a gumdrop, I ate a gumdrop" and kept wondering why anyone would sing about eating a gumdrop.
