Bob & Doug McKenzie's, "The 12 Days Of Christmas (A Beer In A Tree)"
Misheard Lyrics:
Six packs of two folk
Five golden tokes
Four pounds of backache
And three French toes
Two turtlenecks
And a beard in a tree.
Original Lyrics:
Six packs of two-four
Five golden touques
Four pounds of backbacon
Three French toast
Two turtlenecks
And a beer in a tree.
Wimpy adds: "This is actually not the way the traditional Christmas carol was meant to be sung, but the McKenzie Brothers improvised it and sang it that way." :-D
