The Lyrics

[Elf]
I saw the look in his eyes
As we were playin’
He wanted in the band
You know what I am sayin’
And now he’s singin’ out

[Santa, off key]
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas

[Elf]
Now Santa’s driftin’ out of key
He knows we won’t can him
Although it’s plain to see
That all the music critics pan him

He wants to be like Joe Cocker
Santa wants to make himself a rocker
He sings baby, you can leave your hat on
And we all think that’s a shocker

[Santa, off key]
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas

[Elf]
Now Santa’s never sung before
And he doesn’t know the score
His voice is monotone like Al Gore
It makes us cringe

We want to send him a letter
Just to tell him he needs to sing better
We’ll say Santa, Linda McCartney sang
More on key and more on meter

[Santa, off key]
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas (Elf: “Stop!”)
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas (Elf: “Cut the mike!”)
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas (Elf: “I’m outta here!”)
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas (Door slams)

OK, so he wouldn't survive Idol, how about Survivor? :-)

Two Halen Christmas parodies in one day? Is there a contest? 555

544. I suppose next up is a parody of Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach" called, "Santa Can't Sing." Hey! The security code is ADS! Just in time for Christmas, eh?

Thanks Peter, McKludge, alvin, Jonathan, John, Dylan, and MrMacphisto. And I'd like to thank the Academy for this lovely Dylan Baranski award.

(Artistry) A very original and funny idea--Bob Rivers-level material...which is a compliment.

North Pole Idol, eh? Sounds like a great idea for a reality show. You can have The Grinch as Simon Cowell, Frosty the Snowman as Randy Jackson, and as Paula Abdul.... The Ghost of Christmas Past.

Clever!! Especially the "ho, ho, ho" lines... I've gotta give this one 5s

(Artistry) Never saw that one coming. A parody about Santa singing badly - totally out of left field. Doesn't make it any less brilliant, though. 555!

So that's why Mrs. Claus is so unhappy. I thought it was for another reason.
Very original and funny

(Art) Have to be honest buddy, it was funny, but still a XMas related parody, and I go through "Santa Withdraw" every year until about the summer. . .still funny.

lol, I'm going to take off my hat before I do karaoke tonight. Fun stuff, reX-mas. I'll have to register my 5s later as Dave and I are on the same IP right now. Nice work on the rhymes here.
