Better Lyrics:
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Though August's yet to come
And the silliest sight to see are the adverts on TV

Toys in ev'ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
Why They're Nonsensical:
No singing can cause any bells to ring, and one can't sing anything within one's heart.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
Why They're Inappropriate:
In general this is a joyful song exulting in the festive nature of the Christmas season. So why the heck does it have to incongruously interrupt the mood with this one line seeming to say that Mom and Dad are just anxious to get it all over with and see less of the kids?
Submitted by: Courtney Lane
"Do You Hear What I Hear?"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
A Child, A Child, shivers in the cold.
Let us bring him silver and gold.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Wouldn't his immediate needs be better served by warm clothing and/or blankets?
Submitted by: Heidi Jones

Dated Song Lyrics:

"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"
The Dated Lyrics:
Take a look in the five-and-ten,
Glistening once again.
Why They're Dated:
Five-and-ten cent stores (called 'five-and-ten' for short were an abundant thing (in the U.S. at least) when this song came out. Back then they even lived up to their name by having various items for five or ten cents. Hardly anyone back then in the U.S. could have been unfamiliar with such establishments, as even a rather small town might have several within its central business district. Then as suburban shopping centers became an in place to shop, most any good sized shopping center might have one or more such store, and even small shopping centers might well have one. For awhile after inflation made them unable to live up to the name 'five-and-ten' some such stores remained around, under other names such as 'variety store'. But today, they have almost entirely disappeared and surely some of today's young people have no conception of such places. While they could well be the focus of glistening Christmas displays coming to most any neighborhood once upon a time, now the remnants of what were once 'five-and-ten cent stores' are rare and many a young listener might have no idea what these lines are talking about.
