Bells on Popcorn Ring

I'm making a list, but we're not going to be checking it twice.  Because if we did, we'd discover that we've got it all wrong.  It's not that we forgot the lyrics so much as we never knew them to begin with. 

1. Bells on popcorn ring, making spirits bright.  
Original: Bells on bob tails ring, from Jingle Bells
Contributor: Caed, 4 yrs old, who had the sense to at least ask me today how they could get the bells to stay on the popcorn.

2. We milk this city on Rock and Roll 
Original: We built this city on Rock and Roll, by Starship
Contributor: My SIL Betsy, when she was 8 yrs old. (Sorry, Bets, but it's too funny not to share).

3. Round young fur chin. 
Original: Round yon virgin, mother and child, from Silent Night.
Contributor: Me, when I was in elementary school.  I remember thinking, "what's a fur chin, is that like a beard?"  

And speaking of Silent Night, I can't resist sharing this discourse that went on between my niece and her mom during the holiday season:
"Mom, what's a virgin?"
"Um, it's, uh, a lady that's not married."
"No, there's gotta be more to it than that.  Otherwise our sunday school teacher wouldn't have told us to ask our parents."

Anybody else have some mixed up lyrics to share?
