Dug, do you think he sings 'Ding Dong Merrily On High' while he lays in to naughty children?

I've got two-- One was that the youth choir I was in sang "Holy, Holy, Holy" while marching in--so one didn't look at the book. For years I thought it ended (for some odd reason) with "Work with Amen." rather than World without End."

The other was one a friend told me. She was visiting a classroom of 3rd graders who were drawing Christmas pictures. She saw that one youngster had drawn a perfectly lovely nativity, except it had a great big orange ball in the sky. She tried asking the child to explain--and got "That's Mary, that's Joseph," etc. but nothing about the orange blob. Finally she asked and got the answer, "That's Round John Virgin."

That reminds me of a kid at my school who drew Jesus, Mary and Joseph on an aeroplane with anothe man flying it. When he was asked about it he said that it was the 'flight into Egypt' and the other man was 'Pontius Pilot.' :lol:

One that I knew what it says, but I sing it this way.

Moondance, by Van Morrison.

Real Lyrics: "I want one more moon dance with you."

My Lyrics: "I want one Mormon Dance, with you."

Now considering I married a ex-Mormon later in life is what I called poetic justice! :lol:
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?

In a former life I was a supply teacher in KS1 (up to 7 yr olds). In our musical sessions one little girl used to sing with great gusto,
'I am the lord of the dance settee!'
For some reason this always conjured up a vision of a comfortably upholstered version of The Luggage.....and they thought i was smiling because their singing was good :lol:

One of my (adult) students last year listened to her son practising his song for the Christmas concert when he was about 5. Good job she did, as he had learned the words by ear and his version was :

"GOATS HANGING ON THE MOUNTAIN, OVER THE HILLS AND EVERYWHERE,
GOATS HANGING ON THE MOUNTAIN, FAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD"

I just know that for the rest of my life, "Go Tell It On The Mountain" will never sound the same...
