I've heard that Columbia released an edited version of this to radio 
stations though I've never actually seen such a version...any promo copies 
I've ever seen had the "crap" intact.  As I recall, the WBZ edit was a bit 
clumsy so it may have been done in-house.  BZ also aired an interesting 
edit of Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl" with the line "it's a bitch girl" 
replaced with "you're a rich girl".  This may have been a record company 
edit as I recall hearing it on at least one other station, though again 
I've never actually seen a copy with this version on it.

Actually, it was the Hillside Singers that did ILTTTWTS, the Rooftop 
Singers' sole hit was "Walk Right In" from 1963.  Interestingly, the 
Hillside Singers' follow-up was called "We're Together" and was sung to the 
tune of the then-current "you deserve a break today..." McDonalds 
jingle.  The HS may have been the singers on the jingle.
