The Lyrics

Song #5 of "The 12 Parodies of Christmas". I wrote this, then searched AmIRight and discovered that Scathe did the same concept last year. So with all due kudos to Scathe, here is my version.
Deck the house out for the season (fa-la-la)
Decorate beyond all reason (fa-la-la)
Lights on every tree and trellis (fa-la-la)
All the neighbors will be jealous (fa-la-la)

Fill the yard with decorations (fa-la-la)
Santa's reindeer in formation (fa-la-la)
Jingle bells and elves and snowmen (fa-la-la)
All in animated motion (fa-la-la)

Flashing lights along the gutters (fa-la-la)
Chaser lights around the shutters (fa-la-la)
Landing lights up on the rooftop (fa-la-la)
Leading to our chimney gift drop (fa-la-la)

Eighty thousand watts of power (fa-la-la)
Blasting through the nighttime hours (fa-la-la)
When the lights are all in pla-a-ace (fa-la-la)
You can see my house from spa-a-ace (fa-la-la)

Just so long as you acknowledge other versions and don't plagarize, it's all good. Excellent work Rex. Especially liked 'rooftop/gift drop' and 'pla-a-ace/spa-a-ace'.

Ain't it the truth! Edison contributed so much to the holiday season, didn't he? 555

This was lots of fun, but the last verse really made me grin. In my home town the power company has a decoration contest, where the winner gets free power for a year. It's out of control what some people go to. They NEED free power for a year, because they'll be paying off December's bill for a looong time...=)

Thank you all. I will be away from a computer the next few days (the wife's parents are SO far behind on technology) so I will not be able to post or comment again until Sunday. By then I will have a serious case of Internet, email, and AmIRight withdrawal. :-)
