The Lyrics

You will shoot your eye out son
There'll be no Red Ryder gun
Lay this issue dead to rest
Don't you ask no more

Once I was a lad with coke bottle glasses
Going to school with all the rest of the masses
I was living in a dream world
Dreaming of a b-b-gun

Dreams of poison Lifeboy soap, I'm a blind man
Father 'furnace cursing' loud like a mad man
I hear these voices when I'm dreaming
I can hear them say

You will shoot your eye out son
There'll be no Red Ryder gun
Lay this issue dead to rest
Don't you ask no more

Masked marauders in the yard is a reason
For a rifle as a gift, Tis' the season
And if I claim to be a dead-eye, well
Black Bart will be the one to know

Orphan Annie's Ovaltine ad promotion
Bully Farcas bringing lots of emotion
And of course there was the leg lamp
As I hear the voices say

You will shoot your eye out son
There'll be no Red Ryder gun
Lay this issue dead to rest
Don't you ask no more
No!

Dreaming on, I will always remember
Dreaming on, memories of that December
The Christmas lights around my memory
Dad he got the gun for me

You will shoot your eye out son
There'll be no Red Ryder gun
Lay this issue dead to rest
Don't you ask no more (don't you ask no more)

This is a great parody, but the part about Bully Farcas and Annie's Ovaltine ad promotion were tough to understand.

Thanks for the praise Forrest, but I have to say that if you cannot understand the 'bully Farcas' or 'Ovaltine' references to this movie, then you must not have seen it 900 times like the rest of the world. :P

I have seen it once, you jerk!!! So buzz off!!! :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

See so I was right, so calling me a jerk is kinda unwarranted isn't it? Now go ahead and call me names again further displaying your inbred ignorance. :) In my opinion.....this is the best of the parodies I've written and posted here on this site. I believe that the fact that it hasn't gotten anymore votes is because of either jealousy from less-talented parodeers, or because it doesn't mention anything bad about President Bush. Too bad too.....because it really is a good parody.

Johnny Pyro - This parody is straight on the Bulls-eye, 5 times on all 3 targets. Fine job! OH...FYI - unless he is totally putting me on Forrest E. is a little kid, 10 years-old. That might explain not having a clue about Ovaltine, etc.

Reminded me of when my little brother got a BB gun. He used to go to the dump to shoot rats. 5-5-5

Extremely great parody. I love Christmas story and watch it every Christmas. It was exactly like the story was told. Oh and that Forrest guy is a retard. =)

Ralphy may not have gotten an A on his writing about BB guns, but YOU DO! 5-4-5!

Wow, I just found out there's someone else named Forrest Emerine. I'm serious, that's crazy.
