Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Spent a long time when I decked the halls
Spent a long time buying crap at malls
Ooh, gotta take it back, gotta take it back, gotta take it back,
Where this tree come from
Spent a long time, picked the wrong pine
Picked the wrong homely, homely, homely, homely, homely pine
So she says

Spent a long time on my manger scene
Little stuffed Elvis as my newly born King
Gotta get him out, gotta get him out, gotta get him out
My neighbors ain’t no fun
They set him on fire, set him on fire,
Now he’s a hunk-a burnin’, burnin’, burnin’, burnin’, burnin’ child

Spent so long, gettin’ dressed up as Santa
No cookies and milk, just Cheez-its and Fanta
Open your gifts, open your gifts, open your gifts
Cause the new year is coming in
Gonna be a long time, til the next time,
Gonna be a long lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely time.

Hey, two parodies today from Claude? Hopefully it won't be a long time for your next. Well done - I've tried this song for a while and never got an angle on it - maybe I'll get geome-tree lessons this year... :P

Elvis is still a hot commodity - you made him hotter. Well done and nice to see you back Claude.

Don't know the OS (which is either a display of my age or my un-coolness... probably both) but this parody made me want to - in a good way, of course! Sooo many funny lines... 555!
