They Might Be Giants', "Become A Robot"
Misheard Lyrics:
Here's hoping you don't Harbor a penguin
or
Here's hoping you don't Harbor a deathwish
or
Here's hoping you don't Harbor a deathwish
Original Lyrics:
Here's hoping you don't Harbor a wishnik
"Wishnik" is in the lyrics book, but the song REALLY says "Deathwish". TMBG didn't want to scare parents, and thus printed incorrect lyrics.
