image via World Vision

Growing up, there were some songs and nursery rhymes that we loved singing. We were, however, too young to realize that we were getting the lyrics wrong.

We have put together five of those songs. Check them out and let us know which of them you are guilty of singing wrongly.

Here are 5 songs and rhymes that we sang wrongly:

Jesus standing as a conqueror

This is a popular song that we sang in Sunday School, and someway, somehow, we got the lyrics totally wrong!

What we sang:

I saw Jesus standing at the corner, corner.
Singing Hallelujah Amen, Amen…
Day by day; Night by night.

Correct lyrics:

I saw Jesus standing as a conqueror, conqueror.
Singing Hallelujah Amen, Amen…
Saved by Grace; Not by might.


Now The Day Is Over

For this song, we replaced nigh with near, and steal with still.

What we sang:

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing near;
Shadows of the evening
Still across the sky.

Correct lyrics:

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.


Drop it

For this song, we had all of the lyrics wrong!

What we sang:

Lɔɔ Peter
Lɔɔ Peter
Lɔɔ Peter Lɔɔ
Peter send a letter to my lover
On the way I lɔɔ pit.

Correct lyrics:

I drop it
I drop it
I drop it
I send a letter to my lover
On the way I drop it.


Old MacDonald Has A Farm

Instead of E-I-E-I-O, we sang iya iya o.

What we sang:

Old McDonald had a farm iya iya o

Old MacDonald had a farm
Iya iya o
And on his farm he had some cows
Iya iya o…

Correct lyrics:

Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O
And on his farm he had some cows
E-I-E-I-O…


Baa Baa Black Sheep

For this rhyme we replaced boy with girl and dame with lame.

What we sang:

Baa, baa, black sheep
Have you any woo?
Yes, sir, master
Three bags full
One for the master
And one for the lame
One for the little girl
Who lives down the lane

Correct lyrics:

Baa, baa, black sheep
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir
Three bags full
One for the master
And one for the dame
One for the little boy
Who lives down the lane
