Isn't that the lyric? I have always thought that is what it is.

On an aside here, misheard lyrics is a great way of deveolping a childs vocabulary and understanding.

As a major wind up merchant I do it all the time to TLD, we'll be driving along in the car and she'll be singing a song (might be a nursery rhyme, might be Amy Winehouse, might be ABBA, but NEVER EVER Leona Lewis), she'll sing a line of a song and I'll repeat it back changing the words slightly so it doesn't make sense.  A discussion then ensues as to why she is right and I am wrong...

repeat ad naseum (and it can fill a long car journey!!!)
I feel like Captain Kirk, on a brand new planet every day, a little like King Kong on top of the Empire State

That current Coldplay single,'Roman Cavalry Choirs are singing', that's what I hear, but that's just ridiculous isn't it.
