    Real Lyric: Stand and deliver,Your money or your life



    The story:

    As I grew up in the 1980s, all I had was a very
    cheap mono FM radio which was incredibly prone to
    interference. It was through this radio in 1981,
    when I was 11 years old, that I learned of this
    song, and not being a native English speaker, I
    had at that young age no way of knowing what the
    real lyrics were.
    Fast forward to about five years ago: Whilst I
    was on a nostalgia trip I played an 80s playlist
    on Youtube, and one of the songs was Stand and
    Deliver with the lyrics on screen. Only then did
    I learn how wrong my interpretation of the lyrics
    were, after years of singing it wrong.
