It鈥檚 been 20 years since Hanson came out with 鈥淢MMBop,鈥 which, for some of us, means 20 years of singing the wrong lyrics.

The brothers cleared up a common lyrical mistake in a new interview with the Kyle and Jackie O Show. 鈥淭oo many people put a 鈥榳op鈥 in there,鈥 Zac Hanson, the youngest brother in the group, revealed. 鈥淲hat happens is people go to sing that song and they start making it up as if it鈥檚 nonsense. But it鈥檚 actually a repetitive part, it came from doo-wop songs. So it鈥檚 a background part.鈥

According to Google Play, the lyrics are as follows:

Mmmbop, ba duba dop / Ba du bop, ba duba dop / Ba du bop, ba duba dop / Ba du, yeah

Zac also talked about the real meaning behind the song. 鈥溾楳MMBop鈥 represents a frame of time; 鈥榠n an MMMBop they鈥檙e gone,鈥 it says in the lyrics of the song,鈥 he explained. 鈥淭he whole song鈥檚 about the fact that almost everything in your life will come and go very quickly. You鈥檝e got to figure out what matters and grab onto those things.鈥

This part is less shocking, as loyal Hanson fans have adopted the hit as their anthem.
