The Lyrics

What do Brazil and Australia have in common? Besides incredibly hot women and a strange idea of what constitutes "football"?
Hot town! Summertime for Santa!
Back of my sleigh's got a cooler full of Fanta!
Thought it was humid in Atlanta!
Now I'm sweating so much, I don't feel like a Santa!
All around, people on the beaches
walkin' on the sand with their skimpy little breeches!

But at night, it's a different world.
Gotta gift each boy and girl.
Come on, come on, I'll fly all night.
South Hemisphere, it'll be all right.

And kids, I might need some Mylanta
'cause the days can't be like the nights
when it's summertime for Santa
when it's summertime for Santa

Cool town, down there in Australia.
Santa's gonna come, St. Nick ain't gonna fail ya.
Come on, gotta be a hero
for kids in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
'Til I'm swooping to New Zealand.
Gas up at the South Pole, keep the ice-cool feelin'.

But at night, it's a different world.
Gotta gift each boy and girl.
Come on, come on, I'll fly all night.
South Hemisphere, it'll be all right.

And kids, I might need some Mylanta
'cause the days can't be like the nights
when it's summertime for Santa
when it's summertime for Santa

(jingle bells replace the original song's car horns,
the clip-clop of horse's hooves replace the jackhammer)

Hot town! Summertime for Santa!
Back of my sleigh's got a cooler full of Fanta!
Thought it was humid in Atlanta!
Now I'm sweating so much, I don't feel like a Santa!
All around, people on the beaches
walkin' on the sand with their skimpy little breeches!

But at night, it's a different world.
Gotta gift each boy and girl.
Come on, come on, I'll fly all night.
South Hemisphere, it'll be all right.

And kids, I might need some Mylanta
'cause the days can't be like the nights
when it's summertime for Santa
when it's summertime for Santa

(instrumental fade out)

Excellent work here, Michael! I LOVE the original...and you've done it fabulous justice. 555!!!

Oh, and to answer your question before the parody...just a guess...Is Brazil home to a bastard named Stuart McArthur, too?? I need to study my geography more...; )

LOL, Arwen, but methinks that counts as a comment...

very perceptive, Michael - that's our Xmas alright. Don't worry about Santa though - he wears red cotton shorts, a singlet, and a red akubra with dangling corks when he flies over our skies - 555

Excellent, Mr P...as an Aussie displaces to the northern hemisphere, I can look at past Christmases with wistful nostalgia; Christmas down under IS weird!! 555
