Of course not! Things are misheard in songs all the time! If you listen to the end of the song at the beginning of How The Grinch Stole Christmas, (The original cartoon.) it sound EXACTLY like they are saying "Join the Klu Klux Klan!". But obviously, it is misheard. But a lot of people think they are really saying that. Hear it for yourself!

Somehow I don't hear anything about it! ;-) A lot of the words are from the book.

What the song says, I think is:
Trim up your uncle and your aunt with yards of whofut flant

That is what it says. But it's amazing what people will believe!
