    I always thought it was "bus" until now!

    SNAP! I always thought it was bus until about a month ago. It suddenly struck me that it's actually boss, but bus makes more sense.

    Me too. I used to sing it out loud when I was little and my parents never corrected me so I suppose they thought it was 'rain' too.

    I had a friend at school who genuinely thought they were singing "Row, row, refugees" in Rasputin!

    When I was watching the Christmas Day edition of TOTP there was a song that sounded in the lyrics as if the singer was singing "Tesco sober" - ironically, I was rather close to some alcohol from the aforementioned supermarket!
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
