Christmas Carols Redux

Sharing little known verses and variations on two Christmas Carols you thought you knew:
Deck the Halls and We Three Kings of Orient Are


Deck the halls with greens and bows,
Fa la la la la, la la, la, la.
‘Tis the season to overdose,
Fa la la la la, la la, la, la.

Home baked cookies and peppermint bark,
Yada ya, yada ya, ya da ya.
Tipsy carolers after dark.
Yada yada ya, da ya da ya.

Tiny meatballs and cranberry punches,
Yummy yummy yum, y yum yum yum.
Leftovers for a week of lunches,
Yummy yummy—hmmm, and ho ho hum.

Oh, how good that eggnog tastes.
Slurpy slurp, slurpy slurp, drip drip drip.
Hail to thee, elastic waists!
Slurpy slurpy slurp and drip drip oops.

Months of dieting gone to hell.
Oofy oofy oof, y oof oof oof.
Today the scales reads… (I won’t tell.)
Oofy oofy oof, y oof oh my.

Fast away the season passes,
Blah blah blah, blah blah blah, blah blah blah.
Still can’t find my reading glasses.
Blah blah blah blah blur, blur blur blah blah.

Relax! Rejoice! Be of good cheer!
Fa la la yourself and yada ya.
January starts another year.
Yummy slurpy oof and blabbety blah blah.


We three trees from Oriole are,

Bearing glitz from near and afar,

Field mice, found gems,

More glitz, round men,

Following shining stars.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
May you follow your shining stars in 2014 with peace, joy and good health.
