What Are Some Christmas Song Lyrics You’ve Never Gotten Right?
Has anyone else out there been singing the wrong lyrics to some classic Christmas songs their entire life?
There's nothing more embarrassing as a child than not knowing the words to classic Christmas songs. I remember gathering with my cousins to sing carols in front of the tree with Grandma filming us. While most of them belted out the lyrics in a shouting manor, I found that I lacked much of the memorization that my family members possessed. Often times I would make up the lyrics.
Now, as an adult, I find many lyrics I've been singing incorrectly for decades.
For instance, the song "Jingle Bells" features a "one horse, open sleigh." As a kid I would sing it as "one or soffen-sleigh." I have no clue what a "soffen" sleigh is, but I sang it as loud as I could through school assemblies, car rides and even impromptu musicals on the playground. I feel like such a fool.
But I know I can't be alone.
Are there any classic Christmas song lyrics that you've been butchering for years now? Tell us in the comments. I'm sure we'll all get a good laugh out of this.
