There are many songs that I know that I don't know so well, this week's song is "Oh, what a night" by Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons. For about 30 years I thought the chorus went like this:
Oh, I. I got a funny feeling when she walked
In the room and I,
As I recall it ended my youth ..
however the real words are
As I recall it ended much too soon.
which makes more sense but I just couldn't hear it -- not until I went and saw Jersey Boys -- then I could understand the words and now it is perfectly clear. I wonder for how many other songs I have the wrong words.
This is truly something of import to ponder.
