Story about this misheard lyric by: Nunya Bizness: The first time I heard this song I was like 6 or 7 , so I had barely any idea how music worked, and with the impossible-to-understand-the-words music that some people make, it's not that weird that I thought that it was different than what it was made to be. I sang the song with these lyrics for years until I figured out what they actually were, and now I find it hilarious.
