The Lyrics

Okay, here's my first try at a non-political parody. Enjoy!
Why does he always skip the poor?

Flying reindeer by reindeers,
With solid hooves.
Bringing presents to the rich,
Because they can afford you.

Climing down our chimenies,
Relying on our cookies.
You depend on us believing,
Yet you think you're way too good for us.

Fa la la la la la la la la, hooihoo!

Everybody's kissing everybody under missle toe.
Prancing in the kitchen drinking their eggnog real slow.

Slave-driving elves engineering Santa's
little Christmas sleigh.
Breaking into our homes leaving
Some worthless box of clothes.

Wrap the turkey with tin-foil,
Crying SANTAHHHHH!
Leaving milk; obligation.
Still you think you're way too good for us.

Fa la la la la la la la la, hooihoo!

Everybody's kissing everybody under missle toe.
Prancing in the kitchen drinking their eggnog real slow.

Everybody's kissing everybody under missle toe.
Prancing in the kitchen drinking their eggnog real slow.

Blast off!
It's Christmas time!
And we only celebrate Hanukkha!

Blast off!
It's Christmas time!
And why are you so fat?!

Why are you so fat?
Why are you so fat?

Why doesn't Santa come through the door?
Why does he always skip the poor?

Why doesn't Santa come through the door?
Why does he always skip the poor?

Why does he always skip the poor?
Why does he always skip the poor?
Why does he always skip the poor?

Slave-driving elves engineering Santa's
little Christmas sleigh.
Breaking into our homes leaving
Some worthless box of clothes.

Wrap the turkey with tin-foil,
Crying SANTAHHHHH!
Leaving milk; obligation.
Still you think you're way too good for us.

Everybody's kissing everybody under missle toe.
Prancing in the kitchen drinking their eggnog real slow.

Everybody's kissing everybody under missle toe.
Prancing in the kitchen drinking their eggnog

Why are you so fat?
Why are you so fat?

Why doesn't Santa come through the door?
Why does he always skip the poor?

Why doesn't Santa come through the door?
Why does he always skip the poor?

Why does he always skip the poor?
Why does he always skip the poor?
He always skips the poor!
He always skips the poor!
P.S. Happy early holidays everyone...© 2005 RGraphics. All rights reserved.

(SOTM) I don't know what Mikey's complaining about...the title isn't even mentioned in the song. But anyway, I am not too familiar with "BYOB", but know what SOAD sounds like. I got into the spirit (hah!) of it pretty well. It could have been just a touch more nutty. 445

(SOTM) Sorry, Robert....I don't really know who System Of A Down are, let alone any of their music. Nice idea.

SOTM - I think this parody was released prematurely.

It's never too early for Christmas carols. Particularly speed-metal ones. Kudos for the whole idea of turning this original song into something about Santa, and good catch on the fa la la's - it's left me with a stupid grin on my face.

(SOTM) As for the question "Why does he always skip the poor"; I've heard Santa has left notes before of "No milk and cookies, no presents".

Anyway, good parody, I love the "It's Christmas time! And we only celebrate Hanukkha". lol

(SOTM) Nice theme, I've only heard the OS once, ages ago, so could only hum along now and then.

(SOTM) Haven't heard this OS in quite awhile but, a good idea and parody.

SANTAHHHHH!!! I liked that part. Merry Christmas.

SOTM...I am one of those nerds who loves Christmas music no matter what time of year it is...and this made me smile, in spite of the fact that I had to stop listening to System of a Down when I realized that they are, collectively, one of the scariest looking groups of men on this planet. Second only to the Backstreet Boys.

(SOTM) I would think he skips the poor because they keep trying to poison him with out-of-date milk and stale cookies.

According to logic, if Santa went to every boy and girl on the planet in one night, he'd have to travel at a speed that would instantly liquidate him and his reindeer. Not familiar with the OS, reads well though.

(SOTM) Herd of but still DKTOS. Good song anyway.

Damn....lots of comments since I last visited. O_O

SOTM? DKTOS? WTF? Someone? Explain?

I was gonna reply to everybody but uh....I've got better shit to do. (lol)

Ahh well, look out for another parody coming up soon...

All the SOTM comments are because you entered this for the Song of the Month: I was just coming back to comment, myself, having rather rushed through earlier. DKTOS means "Don't know the original song".. WTF means... ;-)

I loved the sentiment behind this one: for a non-political parody, it still has a bit of a political edge, and a lot of bite.

Aha! Thank you Phil...
