The Drugged Up Christmas Song (Parody Lyrics)

I just happened to have had time to finish this Christmas project now, in February, so I’m posting it rather than waiting till next Christmas and forgetting. I had written parody lyrics for Christmas carols and songs 2009, and thought it’d be fun to get back at it in 2016. However, I seem to be a tad rusty and slow so I only started one and finished it over a month late. Still, I think it was fun and I will be singing this next Christmas, along with the others I had written before and linked to at the end of this post. In the meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this one that is a parody to The Christmas Song, as beautifully sung by Nat King Cole in the video below. The parody lyrics is below the video. 🙂

Have Yourself a Bummer of Christmas Parody Tune

Back in 2009, I wrote a half a dozen Christmas parody carols. With limited tools at the time, I could only leave the lyrics and let the viewers do their best to try them. With an iPhone now that allows me to record digitally easily, I figured I’d give one a go.

My other Christmas carol parody lyrics are here:

Maybe in the coming days I’ll record some more for the heck of it. 🙂

Let’s see how many subscribers I’ll lose over these, lol

I Want A Hypothalamus For Christmas (parody lyrics for I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas)

This could be a tricky carol to get a whole group to be able to sing. The video is below if you’ve never heard it or need a refresher to try singing the lyrics.

I got the idea for this song from the only thing I can think of to rhyme with hippopotamus, which was hypothalamus, a portion of the brain that contains a number of small nuclei with a variety of functions. Then I just had to make sure a few other things “made sense”, like how you don’t bring a hypothalamus through the door (last line, second verse or original lyrics), and I had my song.

The topic of this carol spoof is insensitive, I know, to those with hypothalamus disorders, but you can’t live life never insulting anybody. It’s not like I’m choosing to do this as part of a caroling set at a hospital or something, you know! So let’s go, queue the brass band needed and let’s sing!

My other Christmas carol parody lyrics:

I want a hypothalamus for Christmas

Only a hypothalamus will do

Don’t want no doll, nor Cranium nor toy

I want a hypothalamus that works well to enjoy

.

I want a hypothalamus for Christmas

I don’t think Santa Claus will mind, do you?

He won’t have to put it in with paper glue

Just ask a neurosurgeon, that’s the easy thing to do

.

I can see me now on Christmas morning, stomping down the stairs

Bitchy, grumpy but surprised when I open up my eyes

To see a hypo-thala-mus right there

.

I want a hypothalamus for Christmas

Only a hypothalamus will do

No frontal lobes, left/right thalamuses

I only like hypothalamuses

And hypothalamuses like me too!

.

Mom says the hypo, would mess me up but then

Teacher says a hypo controls my circadian

.

There’s lots of room for it in my half-empty brain

I’d house it there, protect it there, and be the same again

I can see me now on Christmas morning, stomping down the stairs

Bitchy, grumpy but surprised when I open up my eyes

To see a hypo-thala-mus right there

.

I want a hypothalamus for Christmas

Only a hypothalamus will do

No frontal lobes, left/right thalamuses

I only like hypothalamuses

And hypothalamuses like me too!


12 Days of Vietnamese Christmas (a parody Christmas carol)

This is a polite parody of the 12 Days of Christmas carol. The song is in the video below, if you need a reminder. I have chosen the version with John Denver and the Muppets because I am quite fond of it.

The small difference is to that version and my lyrics that you sing my version with the 5th and 10th days being diva moments, not just the fifth (Miss Piggy in the video about the “golden rings”). You’re supposed to sing it with two diva moments so I’m not sure why Porky Diva herself didn’t take advantage of that.

Also, in being a little more creative than the original with the lyrics for the 6th to 12th days, make sure you don’t sing them too fast cause you’d probably find it a might tough tongue twister!

My other Christmas carol parody lyrics:

On the (x) day of Christmas,

My true love gave to me…

.

Twelve Viet Cong Commies

Eleven Buddha statues

.

Ten – ao, dai, xanh!!! *

.

Nine knock off Polos

Eight egg rolls rolling

Seven cups of fish sauce

Six pairs of chopsticks

.

Five – bowls, of, rice!!!! (ba dum yum yum)

.

Four incense sticks

Three moon cakes

Two growing pills

And a free trip home to Viet Nam!

.

* Read ow, yai, sanh (nasal sound). Ao dai xanh means green long dress, which is a Vietnamese traditional outfit mostly worn by girls and women.

Noisy Night (parody lyrics for Silent Night)

This is a polite parody or spoof of the Silent Night carol. The idea with this song is you get the kids to make as much noise at the end of every line as possible, as well as act out all the actions prescribed.

A version of the song is at the below. I’ve chosen about as beautiful a version as I know, with Norwegian soprano Sissel singing it. This is for contrast to the lyrics you’re about to read, though I don’t recommend you try singing at Sissel’s pitch. 🙂

My other Christmas carol parody lyrics:

Noisy night, crazy night,

Let us yell, let us fight,

Run, around, and scream, your lungs out,

Wave, your arms, and jump, and then shout,

MOM! NOT NOW! I’m on THE – PHONE!

And Dad, please leave, me alone!

 

Noisy night, crazy night,

Let us burp, through the night,

Burp, with pride, as if, you are proud,

Long, then short, then qui-et, then loud,

Burp, the words, “so let’s, have – fun!”

Turn to your friend, burp, and then run!


Noisy night, crazy night,

Let us fart, through the night,

Fart, with pride, as if, you are proud,

Long, then short, then qui-et, then loud,

They, all stink, so let’s, have – fun!

Go to, a friend, fart, and then run!
