SNT Viewers Can't Believe They've Been Singing The Friends Theme Song Incorrectly
| Last updated
The Friends theme-tune is one of the most well known songs in the world. The Rembrandts (band behind the famous song) must be absolutely raking in it in royalties, especially considering the show is constantly shown on TV regardless of the fact it ended 14 years ago.
If you were watching Saturday Night Takeaway live finale tonight, then you may have got excited that you could play along with the Sing-A-Long Live segment and get every word correct - which is what a poor woman thought when she started carrying the tune during her part in the competition.
Finishing the lyrics: "I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour," the unfortunate contestant confidently sang along: "I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to fall," and couldn't believe that she had guessed the word incorrectly.
Well apparently, neither could the rest of the UK, who proceeded to tweet their shock and horror that they'd been 'singing the wrong lyrics this whole time'.

I've been singing along to the Friends theme for literal decades and I also thought it was "when the rain starts to fall" :joy: Are we sure it's POUR? #SaturdayNightTakeaway

Another commented: "I've watch every episode of friends like a million times, but I still thought it was fall not pour in the theme tune. I'm embarrassed!"

However some viewers couldn't believe that 'real' fans of the show wouldn't have been able to hear the true wording within the song.
Pour rhymes with before people! #saturdaynighttakeaway #friends #snt #friends

One user commented: "Epic fail when you don't know the words to the 'FRIENDS' theme tune! Haha."
Did you think it was pour, or fall?
