It's the most wonderful time of the year...



There'll be much mistletoeing and pirates yo-ho-ing

And plenty of beer;

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
I'm sorry, I just always hear the carol that way. That, and "Chipmunks roasting o'er an open fire..."

Love the lyrics!
Now ... if I can just get Andy William's voice out of my head ...
Thanks ... I think...

Jay G said...

Yeah, thanks a lot Tam. Now I've got that insipid song in my head.

Just to get back at you, you are the dancin' queen...

Heh.

The weird thing was, I had that song stuck in my head even before I read your new lyrics.

I like Andy Williams, but only at Christmas.

The one I always heard was,

"Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the bar is so delightful"

"Chipmunks roasting o'er an open fire..."

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

As a youth, I heard "Chet's nuts, roasting on an open fire..."

Consequently, Andy Williams has always creeped me out..

Chess nuts boasting in an open foyer?

"Nog," they told me (Rum rum-rum-rum rum ... )

I could do this all day.

The one that gets me is "Angels we have heard on high".

After my cousin bought me Grunt: Pigorian Chant from Snouto Domoinko de Silo, all I hear when they sing "Gloria in excelsis Deo" is "Glory in eggshells all day-o"

Well worth checking out Tam. Pigorian chant is a true experience.

When my younger brother was around 4 or 5, he used to sing "Hark, the hairy angels sing". Used to crack me up every time.

Then there's always the Capitol Steps with their rendition of "Gun nuts boasting they can open fire..."

We Pastafarians may need to adapt that for a Holiday song...

Jonathan Coulton, "Christmas Is Interesting." And people say Charlie Brown is depressing ...

I'll take jet engines - turbojets, no less - over Christmas carols. Then again the idea of a pirate Santa Claus going around pillaging homes for toys has some potential. Something along the lines of the Crimson Permanent Assurance.

Lest we forget...the original, and still the best (rest in peace, Walt):

"Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla, Wash., an' Kalamazoo!
Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

"Don't we know archaic barrel,
Lullaby Lilla boy, Louisville Lou?
Trolley Molly don't love Harold,
Boola boola Pensacoola hullabaloo!

"Bark us all bow-wows of folly,
Polly wolly cracker n' too-da-loo!
Hunky Dory's pop is lolly gaggin' on the wagon,
Willy, folly go through!

"Donkey Bonny brays a carol,
Antelope Cantaloup, 'lope with you!
Chollie's collie barks at Barrow,
Harum scarum five alarum bung-a-loo!"

@Ken Long Live Pogo!

Ever since I found this, I haven't been able to listen to Christmas songs without substituting the lyrics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Very_Scary_Solstice

I'll sometimes just randomly pop into "It's starting to look a lot like Fishmen" without warning. As long as I keep my voice low, it doesn't get me any strange looks, but if someone actually hears the words...

Tam you can look up John Valby and the 12 days of christmas, Most all of his work is Not Safe for work.

Lester the Cat patiently listened as the mouse described all that he wished for, for Christmas.

Then Lester ate the mouse.

Here's hoping you get everything you want for Christmas!
