The Lyrics

Here is the idea...take the words of the Three Dog Night pop hit (more or less) and use the tune of the famous Christmas carol. I now have new respect for translators as I try to make the words of one song fit the music of the other. ;D


Jer-e-mi-ah - was a bull frog,
He was a friend of mine!
He made such strange sounds with his head.
I never made out what he said,
But I helped him drink his wine.
And his wine was sure mighty fine.
Yes I helped him drink all all his wine,
His darn fine wine.

(Chorus) Joy to the world - yes to the world!
To all the boys and girls!
To each and ev'ry small fishie
Who lives out in the deep blue sea.
So joy to you - ecstasy,
And a bunch of joy here for me.
Lots of great joy and ecstasy
For you and me.

If I were king - king of the world,
I tell you what I'd do:
I would throw all the bombs away,
The cars and war I'd lose today,
And make sweet love just to you,
And you know I'm telling you true!
Yes I'll tell you what I would do:
Make love to you.

(Chorus - Yes, I know purists want each chorus written out whether it changes or not!)

You know I love - the ladies all.
I love to have my fun.
I am a proud hard-knock fly-er,
A gaudy bright rainbow rid-er,
Straight shooting son of a gun.
All of these things rolled into one.
And my best thing - a straight shooting
Son of a gun!

(Chorus)

(Break chorus - sing to lines 5 through 8 of the carol tune)
Joy to the world, all the world,
And to all the boys and the girls.
Joy to the world - all joy I see
To you and me!

(Three more choruses, eventually fading out)






Feel free to attempt it the other way, but be warned...the reverse is more difficult. ;D
