What A Misunderstood World

One of my evergreen favourites is "What a Wonderful World". Louis Armstrong's original has got to be the best, but Michael Buble's rendition does it justice as well.

Anyway, it is a pretty simple song with simple lyrics and I never read the lyrics until tonight. And oh my, what a shock I got! There is this verse from the song:
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

In the second line, there is the sentence "the dark sacred night". To my horror, I've been singing it as "the dogs say goodnight" for my entire life! OMFG! But in my defense, it really does sound like it when you hear Armstrong's original. Go on and you'll soon agree.
