The Lyrics

These lyrics were first posted at the TransFans Discussion Board at as my holiday project for the Board. I've got dozens of other song parodies posted there, so I'm just testing the waters here. Comments of all kinds welcome.
Same day every year, round the world I go
With no one but reindeer to listen to my woes
I'm more than a beard, more than a sleigh
More than some fat old guy giving toys away
and it's not easy to be me

So much I have to know, so much that I must hide
I may rest a whole year, but only on the outside
I write up that list, and then check it twice
So hard to find any one who tries to be nice
It's hard to go on, without being rude
When elves three feet tall give you attitude
and it's not easy to be me

On Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and five more
Dash away, all
The children sleep sound tonight
Milk and cookies, are all I see

Same day every year, round the world I go
Deer weren't meant to fly, it helps that they don't know
I'm only a man in a funny red suit
It's hard to keep it clean in all this soot
I'm a fat old man, in a silly red suit
Carrying special things, for all of you, for all of you...

I'm only a man in a funny red suit
Toys in my bag and coal in my boots
I'm only a man in a funny red suit
and it's not easy
it's not easy
to be

This should be 2000s not 90s. The original was a hit two years ago, in 2001. I thought we all knew that

Hey, great work! This song's been dying for a parody, and yours fits the bill.

Yeah it has but it's in the wrong decade.. I guess you already knew that

Thanks for your comments. This comes severely delayed but I have a second Christmas song I'm about to put up here, watch this space... (or just the Updates page, or whatever.)
