Thread Name: mis-heard lyrics (surely they didn't say...)
Subject: RE: mis-heard lyrics (surely they didn't say...)
I know I told this somewhere, but as a young boy, going to church and singing was a big part of my life and my grandfather read me stories almost nightly of various bible stories. One night I asked him who "Andy" was. He looked at me and asked what Andy I meant. I said, "You know Pop, the one we sing about in church." He had a thoughtful look, but finally admitted he could not think of a song with Andy in it. I couldn't believe he didn't know, because it was one of his favorites. I said, "Aw Pop, its the one that says, 'Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me.'"

It was one of his favorite stories til the day he died.
