I Asked 64,182 People About “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells”

You know the song “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” of course. It's been around for decades, but depending on when you were born or where you grew up, the lyrics may have been very different. Tom Scott ran a poll to see the differences, and uncovered some shockingly weird lyrics from around the world.

Wimpy Wimpy Wimpy. But it was "Robin laid an egg."

But how about The Battle Hymn of the Republic,
otherwise known as The Burning of the School:

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school
We have tortured every teacher and have broken all the rules.
We're marching to the office to hang the principal.
Our gang is marching on!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
Teacher hit me with a ruler
I met her at the door with a German 44
And she will teach no more!

-chuckle- Teachers didn't seem to like that very
much. Try it in a school today. . .
