You know the alphabet song by heart. It's probably one of the first few songs you ever sang as a kid.

Well, I'm sorry to ruin your childhood — but there's a "new" version of it.

Twitter user and writer Noah Garfinkle shared the grave news with a tweet of the video on 25 October.

"They changed the ABC song to clarify the LMNOP part," he wrote, "And it is life-ruining."

Here's how it sounds:

Did you catch it? Of course you did.

Instead of the usual 'Elemenopee' we know by heart, the version slows down the letters 'L-M-N', adds a pause, and continues with 'O-P-Q' as if nothing is wrong.

Apparently, there's a very good reason for this almost sacrilegious version though

The original video was actually posted back in 2012 by YouTube channel Dream English Kids, who tweaked it to make the song easier for young children who are non-native speakers to learn English.

In fact, another remixed version by the same channel was posted in 2009. So the song is at least 10 years old!

Good intentions aside, the Twitterverse is not having any of it

On the other hand, there have been a few who appreciated the rendition

I don't know about you, but I'm sticking to my 'Elemenopee's'
