Deck the Halls with Punctuation

The other day we heard Angela singing one of her favorite songs off the John Denver and the Muppets Christmas album. "Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, please put a bunny in the old man's hat. If you haven't got a --"

I had to jump in. "Angela, please put a what in the old man's hat?"

She stopped playing and looked up at me. "A bunny!"

I explained that the word is penny, but we like bunny so much better that that's the way we all sing it now.

Not to be outdone by her sister, Sophie-the-super-genius has decided that her new lyrics for her favorite song are "Deck the Halls With Punctuation." She occasionally varies this with "Deck the Halls with Interjections" just to keep things fresh.

Petey doesn't have any new lyrics for us, but he is the first to yell out "AH-ha!" on "Feliz Navidad", and has the Charlie Brown Christmas shoulder-shrug dance down cold. It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

What's your favorite misheard lyric?
