George Bennard's, "The Old Rugged Cross (On A Hill Far Away)"
Better Lyrics:
Gonna go far away
Said my old grouchy boss
He's the meanest I ever did see
And I'll meet someone new
Who's much nicer than him
My old boss is as mean as can be

I'll just bear with my old grouchy boss
Until he fin'ly walks out the door
Say goodbye to my old grouchy boss
He won't be working here anymore
Original Lyrics:
On a hill far away
Stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suff'ring and shame
And I love that old cross
Where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
'Til my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it someday for a crown

Doris Day's, "Que Sera Sera"
Better Lyrics:
When I was just a little boy
I asked my mother, "What will I be?
Will I be handsome, will I be rich?"
Here's what she said to me

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, "What will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich?"
I tell them tenderly
Original Lyrics:
When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, "What will I be?
Will I be pretty, will I be rich?"
Here's what she said to me

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, "What will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich?"
I tell them tenderly
