'Tis true. But you have to admit it's made an already funny song funnier, especially when you had in the dig they make at Outpost Gallifrey where exactly this sort of point would probably have resulted in verbal bloodbaths (and for all I know the blood may well be running in the streets of its successor Gallifrey Base as we speak!). Anyone stop to consider this "error" might have been intentional for that very reason?
