The Lyrics

From the rock opera 'Holidasia.' epiphany: –noun, plural -nies. 1. (initial capital letter) a Christian festival, observed on January 6, commemorating the manifestation of Christ to the gentiles in the persons of the Magi; Twelfth-day. ...4. a literary work or section of a work presenting, usually symbolically...a moment of revelation and insight. This epiphany actually takes place 12 days before Epiphany.
[Sound effects: winter winds, jingle bells, fading into the sounds of a holiday party--boisterous chatter, occasional singing of carols, wrapping paper rustled, kids giggling, whining, etc...]

Red and white and green
Is all the colors I can see
They eat all the snacks
Shake the presents in their sacks
Wish I was having fun
But that's just the way it goes
Drunk all the rum punch
Now I'll get uncomposed!

What is this? Fondue kit?
How goofy! Regift it!
Poisoned fruitcake! Don't eat it!
Getting sloshed! Can't defeat it

Stewart, Jimmy and Alistair Sim
Your movies end with kith and kin
And slowly fadeout as the town bells din

Screw Mary the Virgin
Bless Joseph her husband
That unexpected baby?
That would just kill me
I'm causing trouble
Toss the turkey from its pan
Shake up Pepsi bottle
Spray it on Cousin Dan!

What is it? Curse and spit
This party? I'll trash it!
Hey you kids there--a secret!
Know Rudolph? I killed it!!

Christmas Eve at the moment...
Blood pressure falling
Temper subsiding
Angels are calling
Christmas Eve, get an omen...
The forest calling
No more my bawling
A tree is falling...

Wife, I'll be back soon
Sorry to be a such a loon!
Please kids, don't cry
I finally know why I'm feeling restless
Uncle Howard, please come on down
May I borrow your chainsaw
And rope to tie this down?

Stewart, Jimmy and Alistair Sim
Your movies end with kith and kin
And slowly fadeout as the town bells din

What is this? I futzed it!
Don't worry, I'll fix it
Come on Uncle, let's do it
Through those pine trees
I've found it...

Christmas Eve, at this moment...
Christmas Eve, at this moment...

[During instrumental break, appropriate sound effects for the next stanza...]

The chainsaw buzzing
The woodchips flying
The trunk is baring
The tree has fallen!

Never heard the OS before, but there were a lot of funny lines in here and you matched the original tune pretty well. Solid work!

(ABC) I don't know if it's because this is partway through a rock opera, my own failure to comprehend or something else, but I was entirely confused. What was the epiphany? It just seemed like endless rambling about Christmas stuff. I also don't know what "kith and kin" means. Clearly I'm just missing something, but this parody just went completely over my head, sorry.

An oldie that i hadnt heard before now. I have to admit Im also a bit lost as well, tho not on the pacing which was great. Fav line was "Regift it!". tree fives for you.

Not bad but it sounds like drunk ramblings of somebody who really hates Christmas
Agrimorfee - June 03, 2016 - Report this comment
The whole epiphany here is the narrator, who throughout my full lenght Quadrophenia parody "Holidasia" is seeking the proper Christmas spirit he never has been able to attain. He finally realizes all he needs is a proper, freshly chopped Christmas tree. But like the original Quadrophenia album, that climactic thought is kinda vague. :) Glad you enjoyed it for what it was.

(ABC) I felt like I was playing catch-up too. Reading your comments now, it helps make the story clearer, but before that I felt like someone who walks into a room where people are watching a movie and it's 3/4 of the way through. I was confused mostly. But taking this as a Christ,as parody, yeah, I enjoyed the rambling nature of it. Good work! Maybe I'll go through and check out the entire story arc!
