Everybody knows the song. First released by Brenda Lee in 1958, it’s since become a classic and is one of the most recognizable and widely-known Christmas songs in the world. It’s a nice, wholesome tune and one of the very few Christmas songs that I don’t hate.
And now it’s ruined, all thanks to a TikTok from Brad Paisley.
You see, the words to the song are SUPPOSED to go:
“Rockin’ around the Christmas tree Let the Christmas spirit ring Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie And we’ll do some caroling”
Well apparently that’s not what Brad Paisley heard. And after you watched this video, that’s not what you’ll hear either.
“You can’t unhear this. Merry 2020 Christmas. Brenda Lee you ornery little minx. Credit to 11 year old Jasper Paisley for noticing the explicit lyrics. Song recorded in 1958 with 2020 vision.”
