Thread Name: What are the worst lyric screwups you've
Subject: RE: What are the worst lyric screwups you've
In the Billy Grammer song 'Gotta Travel On' I kept hearing...Pauper rags to Johnny....what it asctually says is....Poppa writes to Johnny....I am glad to see that I am not alone and even more heartend to see that others also have the capacity to laugh at themselves once in a while. A trait that seems to be disappearing these days!! Another one I just a lil one, when singing Christmas carols, the line in 'Deck The Halls' came out....deck the halls with bousuf, folly, folly la, la, la, la, la! I had no idea what 'bousuf' was but others were singing the same thing so to my young ears it made sense!
