The Decemberists', "Sons and Daughters"
Misheard Lyrics:
When we arrive sons and daughters
We'll make our homes on the water
When we build our walls
Aluminum will fill our mouths
With cinnamon now

When we arrive sons and daughters
We'll make our homes underwater
When we build our walls of aluminum
We'll fill our mouths with cinnamon now
