Drake Bell Reveals We Were All Singing Wrong Lyrics To Drake And Josh Song

Aside from Drake Bell's own career, possibly the most enduring thing to come out of the shortly-lived Nickelodeon show Drake & Josh was his theme song for the show, 'Found A Way'. But there's no easy way to say this... we've been getting the lyrics wrong all this time. Watch below:


Yep, Drake has recently taken to Instagram to tell people they've been singing it wrong all this time, after witnessing presumably thousands of people over the years singing 'It's going to take some time to realise' at him.

In the video above, he tells his followers: "Hey, so fun fact about 'Found A Way'.

"You know what, I've said it a million times but I still have to say it - it's actually 'realign' not 'realise'."

Bell then proceeds to play his famous chorus with the correct words intact, leaving his 4.3 million followers in doubt as to what they should be singing.

Obviously, plenty of commenters pointed out they'd been singing it with the correct words the whole time, with one more honest user writing: "OMG All this time I've sung it wrong LOL."

While another added: "I sang 'realise' my whole life".

Another fan joked: "Ha check this guy out. He thinks it's realign."

Perhaps the most interesting comment though came from veteran 90s band and meme sensations Smash Mouth, who suggested they cover it.

SomeBODY (geddit?) from the band wrote from their Insta account (to a rapturous response): "Didn't know that. Hey we should cover that song. Would you hate us?"

'Found A Way' was written by Drake as the theme song for Drake & Josh, which saw two step-brothers live together and get up to all manner of escapades despite - or perhaps because of - their wildly different personalities.

Co-star Josh Peck has since gone to appear in and provide voices for several kids' TV shows and films, perhaps most notably the voice of Eddie in the Ice Age franchise.

As for Drake, he too has largely continued in the children's TV and film arena, including voiceovers for animated Marvel shows Avengers Assemble and Hulk & The Agents of SMASH.

He's also continued his music career alongside this, however, releasing five studio albums.

Drake caused confusion among his fans last year, however, by changing his name on social media to Drake Campana - which means bell in Spanish - and suggesting that he would only be posting in Spanish from now on.

This move came amidst reports that he had moved to Mexico and begun writing songs in Spanish.

However, that was clearly short-lived if this video is anything to go, as he's clearly back speaking in English. His Twitter profile, meanwhile, is in English - with Bell clearly taking a keen interest in NFTs and cryptocurrency.

While there were murmurs of a Drake & Josh reboot a while back, it seems the former teen star has more than enough on his plate for now.
