Default misheard theme song lyrics

what lyrics in theme songs have you thought were right but you've found out you've had them wrong?
I always though that, in the GREEN ACRES theme when Lisa sings "Neeew York is where I'd rather stay..." when the show first aired in the 60s I thought it was "Nooo, York is where I'd rather stay..."
And in THE BRADY BUNCH theme when they sing "Here's the story...of a man named Brady..." back when the show first aired in the early 70s I thought they sang "Here's the story...of Adam Brady..."

clerk: " The ruby I am talking about is not a lady."
Granny: "Lissen, how she got them diamonds is her business. I'm just sayin' ask her kin we buy one from her."

Up until a few months ago I always thought that she said "I swear" instead of "Times Square."

Two from Gilligan's Island


If not for the courage of the fearless crew
the Minnow would be lost.
The Minnow would be lost.

When I was little I thought it was "The Middle would be lost"!


And in the closing theme :


So this is the tale of our castaways,
they're here for a long, long time.
They'll have to make the best of things,
it's an uphill climb.

Instead of" it's an uphill climb" , I thought it was" It's enough to cry" !

LOL, I used to think they were singing- "through the courtesy of Pretzel Pete".

I used to say to myself- "Who the hell is Pretzel Pete?"

For decades I thought they were singing: "I know this march is true.."

"Diff'rent Strokes" theme: I thought the line was: "They got nothing but their dreams." But, it's "They got nothin' but their jeans" !!!

To this day, I can't understand what he's saying. It sounds like "I'm gonna get some braggets, and some rolls and reezamizing..."

Yep the lyrics of The Bill Cosby Show theme are mostly incomprehensible.
