Take our quiz to find out!

As much as I adore musicals, I admit I usually remember melodies better than lyrics. In fact, I often mishear (and thus, mislearn) lines -- apparently Velma doesn't sing, "Hold on, bud, we're gonna funny hug," in Chicago (though "funny hug" sounds much more criminal than "bunny hug"). Misunderstood lyrics are so rampant, there are entire YouTube videos and hilarious message board threads dedicated to frequently misheard lines. That's why TDF's social media master and musical maven, Christina Trivigno, put together a 10-question quiz with some of Broadway's most frequently misquoted verses. See if you can pick out the right words, and then share your funniest misunderstood lyrics in the comments.
