"Puff The Magic Dragon"
Misheard Lyrics:
Frollipin the Otamus
Original Lyrics:
Frolicked in the autumn mist.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Anna

My entire childhood I thought Puff The Magic Dragon & Frollipin The Otamus were friends. I thought he was kind of a cross between an otter & a hippo. I was devestated to find out at age 18 that Frollipin never existed.

"Puff The Magic Dragon"
Better Lyrics:
Puff, my ass is draggin', it's 103
I'd like to lick a cooling mist or be splashing in the sea
Puff, my ass is draggin', it's 103
I'd like to lick a cooling mist or be splashing in the sea
Original Lyrics:
Puff, the magic dragon, lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee
Puff, the magic dragon, lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go

I hate to wake you up to say goodbye.

Go and door do not rhyme. Every time that line comes on, I sing... All my bags are packed I'm ready to go...I'm standing here outside your doe (ebonics for door) It makes me cringe when I hear that

Onomatopoeia in Lyrics:

"Marvelous Little Toy"
The Lyrics:
It went zip when it moved
and pop when it stopped,
Whir when it stood still,
I never knew just what it was,
and I guess I never will.
In one Christmas concert, P,P&M called audience members who didn't make the required noises "yuppies".
