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

It’s December again, and for those who want to liven up the holidays with some inappropriate Christmas carols, I have eight I have written starting from back in 2009.

Have Yourself a Bummer of a Christmas (parody lyrics for Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas)

The lyrics below the video are parody or spoof lyrics to the carol Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. The video demonstrates the carol, if you are not familiar with it or need a refreshment or check details of the tune. It is a beautiful version by John Denver and Rowlf the Dog of the Muppets, from 1979. Credits to my friend Lorie for introducing me to this video and album.

I’ve always thought the melody of this song to be a tad wistful, even if I can totally see its appropriateness for a pensive and reflective carol that the original is. John and Rowlf did an exceptional job of that. But because of its wistfulness in tune, that was where I got the idea for these parody lyrics.

My other Christmas carol parody lyrics:

Have yourself a bummer of a Christmas

Hope you get no-thing

But the blues, loneliness and bills from shopping


Have yourself a bummer of a Christmas

May your tree burn down

With your house, and everything else around


Leaving you, homeless in the streets

Nothing on your feet, and cold

With no friend, who is near to you

Who is dear to you, to hold


Through the years, this always seems to happen

Every Christmas Day

So go on, go burn down other people’s homes

You’ll have friends on, that bummer of a Christmas Day
