A carol in progress...

Tiny 'bots with their eyes all aglow
Will be turned loose to seek tonight...

You know that Santa's gonna slay,
Naughty boys and girls had better pray.
And every mother's child is gonna cry
As reindeer drop napalm from the sky...

Bobbi and I were working on this one at the grocery store the other day. I didn't notice any strange looks from fellow shoppers, but to be honest, I wasn't really looking.

Apparently Tam got some spam to go in the bowl of fried meat for breakfast...

No napalm or guided munitions....but Santa is going to find out who's naughty.

Your song reminds me of the 'Futurama' episode with the killer Santa robot. OMG, I am such a geek - to think of that right off the bat.

Don't forget to publish the complete lyrics....

OK, after seeing the Terminators with side locks and prayer shawls, now I'm going to have visions of Terminators in santa caps. Thanks, I think.

Why not

At reindeer crapping napalm from the sky

I think it scans better.

Oops: Have to change the harness on the reindeer, though, so they can fly in "V" formation. Rudolph still takes point.

I guess I'm not the only one to have Evil Robot Santa come to mind.

Dude, Santa's Slay is an AWESOME movie.

I'm sure the technology exists to do an audio of your new version in Nat King Cole's voice...which would be awesome.

Yes, please do share the lyrics of the entire song.

I KNEW you and Roberta had a soft sentimental side to you...

Firehand said...

Started on something like that once, never got past
"Deck the streets with fallen bodies,
Falalalala, lala la la"

Julie said...

Firehand ... how about

"Deck the streets with fallen bodies,
Falalalala, lala la la

Time to pay for reckless follies
Falalalala, lala la la"

... over to you ....

staghounds said...

"Soon, there'll be a smoking barrel-

Falalalalalalalala..."

And, no strange looks? Because your fellow shoppers all backed quietly away, whatebvr you do, don't make eye contact...

Hope you don't mind, but I took a crack at finishing the carol.
