**Christmas To See**
(Sound effects of a winter snowstorm, occasional jingles of a one-horse open sleigh...)

(vocoder:) Helplesss Prancer ...

Christmas Eve...in a moment...

Bad Boy!....Bad Boy!...

Loooooook....at my treeeeee....

**A Real Tree**

Can we get a real tree? Can we?

I chew fat with my father
To see what he would think
If we could get a tree this weekend
But he snorts and grunts as he drinks

Can we get a real tree, father? Father?!
Can we get a real tree, father? Father?! Oh bother!

I next run to my mother
I say, "Come on, the price will be free"
She says, "Chop it ourselves, son?
That's illegal in our county!"

Can we get a real tree, Mother? Mother?!
Can we get a real tree, Mother? Mother?! Oh bother!

Get a tree, real live tree, real live tree, can we get a real tree?

The cracks I hear behind my back
Give me shivers like a snowy rain
School buddies they tease me
Saying that our kind have such tastes so lame
The smell I used to love
Would waft throughout the house
Yesterdays' soft scent of pine
We only have a fake tree now

Can we get a real tree? Can we?
Can we get a real tree? Can we?

I saw the old Christmas tree man
I asked of his sell date
I peeved him more than a little
"It's only October, just wait!"

Can we get a real tree, vendor?
Can we get a real tree, Mother?
A real tree, a real tree!
Can we get a real tree, Father?

Can we get a real tree tree tree tree tree tree....

YES! Every year I b!tch at my mom about her fake tree. Nothing beats a real Douglas Fir for Christmas.

SOTM-I'm Jewish but I can understand the idea behind this. I hate electric Menorahs! I gotta smell that burning candle wax. Similar? Maybe.

I know I read this one, because I followed along with you and you're entire Christmas Who project. A great way to kick it off, and congrats on getting the entire album done within the time of one month that takes some effort, believe me I tried it for Halloween and failed.

(SOTM) Great effort in the internal rhyming. A few more puns or jokes would have made this better though.
Peter Andersson - January 18, 2009 - Report this comment
Those super parody projects are fun to do, but more fun to those on the inside than those on the outside, with very few exceptions, and as a stand along song to me this wasn't one of those.

(SOTM) I had a hell of a time with the YouTube videos, so that made it a bit frustrating. The video you provided wasn't loading fast enough and would pause mid-song, and then the next video of "Real Me" (by itself) was abridged, so I finally found a good video to use, but these frustrations made the parody a little less funny to me. 444

Great

(SOTM) I've never had a real tree - but then I don't think they grow much in Aussie. DKTOS, but I'm presuming the pacing was perfect given the votes. Nice work!

(SOTM) not LOL funny, Ag, but I appreciate the need to stick to the OS in these projects - great idea for a project btw and a worthy intro piece - 555

(SOTM) I enjoyed the sentiment about the fake tree. Well done on the song.

(SOTM) Well written to the OS, I could see the image painted. I'd say cute is the best way to describe this one.

SOTM - The pacing was a little off from the youtube recording, seemed like your parody had an extra syllable or two here and there. And I agree with Peter about holiday themed parodies. Sometimes (and I'm just as guilty) you have to force things a little to get in done in a timely fashion, and this one suffered a bit from that.
