All my life I’ve heard the Christmas song “A Marshmallow World.” It was covered by a lot of artists, but the one that seems to get the most play is the Darlene Love version. And rightfully so.
But I’ve always misheard the lyrics. I always thought the song ended with “the winner is the marshmallow girl.” It never made sense to me. Who was the marshmallow girl? What did she win?
Target is now using that song in their ads, and they run constantly. So earlier today I was doing something and the TV was on in the background and sure enough, that song came on. And as clear as day I heard “In winter, it’s a marshmallow world” and suddenly it all made sense.
