Sublime's, "By The Rivers Of Babylon"
Misheard Lyrics:
By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept
When he remembered Zion
Oh, the wicked carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we singing of a song
In a strange land?
So, let the words of our mouth
And the meditations of our heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight
Over us!
Original Lyrics:
By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there, he wept
When he remembered Zion
Oh, the wicked carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we sing King Alpha's song
In a strange land?
So, let the words of our mouth
And the meditations of our heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight
Oh, verai!
Jimmy Cliff's, "By The Rivers of Babylon"
Misheard Lyrics:
By the rivers of Babylon,
where we sat down,
and we got wet,
when we remembered Zion
Original Lyrics:
By the rivers of Babylon,
there we sat down,
and there we wept,
when we remebered Zion
