All these years I've thought it was this but just realised it's "Oh bring us some figgy pudding" duh anyone else misheard lyrics?

I thought it was sticky pudding confused

My husband used to think the hymn went “dance then, wherever you may be - I am the lord of the dance settee”

"Hark the herald danger sing"

‘Children drinking Christian wine’
‘Good tidings we bring to you and your king’ (only just found out it’s kin)
‘We three kings of Orientah’

And when I was little I wondered what a way was, as in ‘a way in a manger’ I figured it meant something like a waif

'ang on! You absolutely sure that it's "you and your kin ?shock

Bloody hell - things you learn on MN!grin

we three kings of Orientah it's not this?? What's the words??

Surely nothing beats a post last year where someone's child was singing "the little Malteaser lay down his sweet head." gringringrin

@Blackladybug ‘we three kings of orient are’

thenewaveragebear1983 Thu 06-Dec-18 17:48:36

Its ‘we three kings of orient, are....
Bearing gifts....’ etc etc

The other one commonly misheard is ‘good king Wenceslas’ often sung as ‘good king wenslas LAST looked out.

I know it’s not a Christmas one, but about three days ago I realised Aretha Franklin wasn’t singing about getting the liquid antiseptic out.

Up until then I thought the lyrics of Respect went “R E S P E C T take out the TCP...” when the actually go “R E S P E C T take care TCB”.

My eldest used to think it was “the kettle are lowing” in away in a manger

My Dd sings "good timings we bring to you and your king" and "bring us some thingie pudding" which make me laugh, I do try and correct her but she insists she's right.

WaterBird Thu 06-Dec-18 18:02:31

Also not a Christmas one, but the song "American Pie." When I first heard it I thought it was "And good old Borris was drinking whisky and rye"

WinterCoat Thu 06-Dec-18 18:04:12

Oops I thought it was PIGGY pudding until 5 minutes ago....

LuxuryWoman2018 Thu 06-Dec-18 18:15:53

Hmm, I’ve just googled the lyrics to ‘we wish you a merry Christmas’ and I’ve been singing it all wrong.

It’s ‘oh, bring us us a figgy pudding’ I sing ‘now, bring us...
And that verse ends ‘and a cup of good cheer’ and not my version ‘and bring it right here’
Very demanding those carrollers, they won’t go until they’ve got some, which is a problem as I have no idea what figgy pudding is.

HighlandWorrier Thu 06-Dec-18 18:16:21

Haha these are great kept 'am coming grin

Heuschrecke Thu 06-Dec-18 18:18:15

So now I have an earworm of 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas'.

Thanks all fgrin

JamieVardysHavingAParty Thu 06-Dec-18 18:19:47

And that verse ends ‘and a cup of good cheer’ and not my version ‘and bring it right here’

Well, it's wrong, because my carol book circa 20+ years ago had 'and bring it right here'. So there!

It was printed, so it must have been right!

LuxuryWoman2018 Thu 06-Dec-18 18:22:38

Gets more confusing then *JamieVardy’ I’m finding a few different versions, I’ll stick with my traditional one as printed in your book, which must be correct.

keepingbees Thu 06-Dec-18 18:23:11

When my son was little I heard him belting out "and a palm tree in a pear tree"

JamieVardysHavingAParty Thu 06-Dec-18 18:28:52

I should hope so. I had to rehearse that version and sing it to a polite an adoring public for a carol service. I refuse to believe I spent all those hours studying songsheets that weren't the one and only Authorised Version.

BinksyB Thu 06-Dec-18 19:21:01

Not a carol, but I thought the pogues sang ‘you’re an old southern drunk’ rather than the meaner ‘you’re an old slut on junk’. To be fair, they aren’t lyrics you would normally hear on the radio!

My daughter say "Away in a manger, no crisps for the bears".
