It’s a classic case of misheard lyrics. The song was this one: In college, a friend of mine was certain the lyrics were “Hail, hail, I love Judah” when it was actually “Hail, hail, Lion of Judah.” We laughed about that a lot which is sort of the point of this post. A lot of times misheard lyrics are more fun than the real lyrics. At the very least it can keep making you laugh, because even to this day, 15 years after college, I laugh about her singing I love Judah.
