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. 🙂

Lyrics for San Clemente’s Not the Same, Mr Nixon You’re to Blame (by Barbara Foster)

So, someone found a popular song for which lyrics were not online! And it was on my site, of a song for which I posted a video! At their request, I typed out the lyrics and they are below the video.

Sing along folks cause it’s a great singalong tune!

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

You made our town , your summer home
You crowned it with, the Capital dome
You took a step, out on the beach
Now Cotton’s Point, is out of reach

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

At nine we used, to close the bar
That was OK, with F.D.R.
Oh Mr Nixon, you’re so great
But must your guest, stay out so late?

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

Before we close, I’d like to say
Oh, neighbour we’d, like you to stay
But would you take, us off the map
And give us back, our noon day nap

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

Mr Nixon, you’re to blame…

Mr Nixon, you’re to blame…

What beautiful lyric writing! To start out with a first verse that opened the story, but also served as a repeatable chorus! You try writing a story where the intro can be repeated to finish off each section!

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
