Parody Song Title:

"Flockin' Synthetic Christmas Trees"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

*2 oz. whiskey, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 1 dash bitters, 2 tsp. water, lemon peel, maraschino cherry.
Flockin' synthetic Christmas trees,
Have a Christmas party pop.
Mistletoe hanging plastically—
Made from petroleum glop.

It invokes sentimental feelings of yesteryear,
If you drink enough, by golly.
Heck, you might think it's real holly.

Flockin' synthetic Christmas trees
For an ersatz holiday.
Here's Santa, saying "verily"
In a stewed old-fashioned way.

[instrumental break]

Crocked underneath the Christmas tree
Get the Christmas spirits—drink!
You try to hump your brother's wife
Named Carol, who takes a swing.

You'll find your head reeling after you've drunk 30 beers.
Joyce, your wife, is getting jollies
Upstairs with her best friend, Molly.

You're choppin' down the Christmas tree—
These are hacking holidays.
Everyone's staring warily
In a stewed Old Fashioned* haze.
