I sung it like this and my friend told me it was the other way, but I was so sure that it was right my way, that I argued with him for a while about it, until he showed me the jacket for the Cd. I surely learned a lesson in humility!!

When I decided to buy the album and read the lyrics sheet since I never could understand the chorus, although all the other songs made sense...I'm so glad I do that mutter-sing thing when I sing a song I don't know (does that sound like something from Rogers and Hammerstein to anyone else?) so I was never caught...
