Did you hear what I heard?

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some parents aren't lovin' what they think they hear on a music CD in McDonald's Happy Meals.

CD contains a song called "I don't want to be". Some parents believe they hear a curse word. We played the song for a local Youth Minister.

"[I'm] Very surprised," said Youth Minister Antonio Cooper. "It's blatant. It's blatant when you hear the F-word and kids will too."

McDonald's and KidzBop, which produces the CD, insist it does not contain profanity.

The lyrics as written, also do not contain any profanity.

    • Here is the statement issued by McDonald's in response to the story-

"Kidz Bop is a leading national children's brand that delights families and kids with appropriate versions of popular songs. An inaccurate claim has been made regarding lyrics in the song, "I Don't Want To Be," included on Kidz Bop CD number six from the current McDonald's Happy Meal promotion.

This song contains the original lyric, "I'm tired of looking 'round rooms," and does not contain profanity, as some have suggested. The CDs will continue to be available at McDonald's restaurants as part of this Happy Meal promotion, while supplies last."
