    Here's a thread to compare the differences in the lyrics of songs performed on TMS vs. their original versions, as it was a common practice for the TMS writers to edit the lyrics for their purposes.

    Episode 214: Elton John
    Goodbye Yellow Brick Road:
    This stanza is gone: "What do you think you'll do then/I bet they'll shoot down your plane/it'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics/to set you on your feet again."

    Episode 201: Don Knotts
    What a Wonderful World (sung by Rowlf):
    Original:
    I hear babies cry/I watch them grow/they'll learn much more/than I'll ever know
    TMS: I hear puppies cry/I watch you grow/you'll learn much more/than I'll ever know
