Mis-heard Xmas song lyrics

Post by memory man »

In the words of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"

I always thought it was "Good tidings we bring to you and your king"

But it is actually "Good tidings we bring to you and your kin"

Apparently Jesus had a teddy bear. My late mother reminded me for nearly 60 years that when I was very tiny I sang “Away in a Manger” as:

“The little Lord Jesus lay down with sweet Ted.”

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit (Max Ehrmann - “Desiderata”)
