Fractured Christmas carols

I found some funny stuff from an old file. These come from a Youth Specialties subscription email I had years ago, 2002! You know how you hear some songs and wonder what the lyrics are. Sometime we just fill in the blanks and “make up” a line or two. Imagine what kids hear…for example. They asked kids about the titles and lines from some standards:

Deck the Halls with Buddy Holly

We 3 Kings of Porridge and Tar

On the first day of Christmas my tulip gave to me

Later on we’ll perspire, as we dream by the fire

He’s makin’ a list, chicken and rice

Noel. Noel, Barney’s the king of Israel.

With the jelly toast proclaim

Olive, the other reindeer…

Frosty the Snowman is a ferret elf they say…

Sleep in heavenly peas

In the meadow we can build a snowman, Then pretend that he is sparse and brown

You’ll go down in Listerine

Oh, what fun it is to ride with one horse, soap and hay

Come, froggy faithful

You’ll tell Carol, “Be a skunk, I require” (I think that is – Yuletide carol being sung by a fire?)
