Messing up your Christmas - one twisted song at a time...

(sorry, would have sung it Vlog style... but I need a camera person for that - and he's at work... turn on your copy of the REAL song and sing along... hopefully it works out most of the time :)


I wonder as I wander
Out into the throng
why this year, again...
I've waited so long

All these ornery people
Like you and like I
should be home with their families
wrapping up Dad's new tie

When the kids see commercials - for this year's new doll
"I want that" "I need that" yep we've heard it all
that thing called a budget - well it's kinda small
They'll just have to be happy - with a bat and a ball

It's not like they're asking for any big thing
like an X-box or laptop... or a new diamond ring
but we have five children - and that adds up - ch'ching
what about just an orange - and a good Christmas Sing


I wonder as I wander... out into the mall
How anyone on earth - can please one and all
For poor ornery people like you and like I
Must wonder - and wander... until Christmas is Nigh...

Wish I had your talent for poetry. Good job. Totally understand the blowing of the budget for Christmas shopping.

Lisa said...

One word--VMA's. Okay, so maybe that's really three letters, but you get it. I'm waiting for your video release.

I agree with Barb. I did all my black friday shopping online, and it did change my world.

Very funny, though.

T you always make me smile. I do miss "Walking in a latte land." They just don't play that in the sunny states or was that because the home of the latte is Seattle ? (: lol

April said...

I'm with Pat & Barb...online shopping! Oh wait, you still have to have $$$ for that. Never mind.

Megz said...

And you said you couldn't have a poetry blog....

Garden of Egan said...

That is hilarious!
Another song could be Away with you Stranger.......(cuz you're shopping in Walmart)

Or
Smack the Halls.......aren't they the obnoxious next door neighbors partying till all hours of the night?

If you want, I will vlog sing it for you. I am good at it.

Very clever. I like oranges for Christmas.

We always have oranges in our stockings. You should look into professional song writing. Love it!
