Ib ghyrcg tgadt Sunday they were paying my favo rilte hymn.Sio I sang with all ny mght qutote we will come reioiceing bringing in the sheep, bringin in the sheep , we shall come 'rejoicing bringing in the sheep. unquote Suddenly all ethe others were singng i bringi ng in tthe sheep, we woll come rejooicing bringing in the sheep..It ended and all 'my friends and neighors s were clapping. The preacher explained' that whjille the words were bringi ng in the sheaves sheep was what all of us Newell resurrects dod bring in our sheep The ranchers were sheep growers so t hey underso o nd me as a kidl I will never forget t hat as io was s surprosd I did nt know whether to'laugh or to cryMy parents really iked tha miniser very uch.

I love "misheard lyrics" and when people accidentally say things wrong, it's one of those things that makes me laugh so much that people look at me like I'm even more of a weirdo than I actually am
