Lyrical mixup

The other night while watching American Idol, I suddenly gasped...and it wasn't because of the horrible singing. I came to the realization that pretty entire life, I have been singing a song...completely wrong. It was the popular 80s song "Arthur's Theme (Best that you can do)" by Christopher Cross.

The actual words: "If you get lost between the moon and New York City"

How I've been singing it: "If you get lost between the moon and to your sadie"

I started laughing and told Bertrand that this entire time...I had no idea how wrong I was. He said, "Well that doesn't even make sense. What is to your sadie?" My point exactly! That's why I was always confused and just sang that part a little softer than the rest of the song.

Well now...I know.
