Jousting Jubilee

As you all know, it's that time of year again, and Christmas songs are on all the time. Your task should you choose to accept it, is to take one of these said songs, and revamp it's lyrics. As always, points for creativity, and extra points if you can change the holiday of a classic Christmas song. Happy Jousting!!


  1. The November Carol (A prep-Christmas song)
    I'm dreaming of a Black Friday... like no one has ever seen before...
    where the aisles glisten, and shoppers listen, to hear of bargains in the store.
    With every debit charge I run...I say may all Black Fridays be this fun.
    I'm dreaming of a Black Friday, the best Black Friday of them all... with gifts for my tree...where no one bites me...as I run from sotre to store out at the mall. With every bargain that I find, I leave all the other shoppers far behind.

  2. Oops, I meant pre-Christmas song. Although prep Christmas kinda works. :0s

  3. Hmm, and I meant store. These comment spaces needed an edit option, since I can't seem to proof-read well enough.

  4. Christmas Songs (Sung to the tune of "Jingle bells)

    Dashing through the store
    Searching for some gifts
    Spending til we’re poor
    Through the sales we sift.

    Stockings will be filled
    Christmas trees we will buy
    Credit cards will all be billed,
    A Christmas sale, my eye!
    Christmas songs, Christmas songs,
    Played in every store.
    We barely finish Halloween
    When Christmas carols roar!

  5. Dang...should have left that last verse, "we'll" instead of "we will"

  6. To the tune of "O Little Town of Bethlem":

    O little boxes of ornaments
    How still we see thee lie
    Upon the counter, on the floor,
    And on the chair nearby.
    No ear may hear feet coming
    To place thee on the tree
    The tree is up, the lights are lit,
    But still we ignore thee.

    How silently, how silently,
    The whole house sits today.
    There's no one here to get up
    And put anything away.
    They're sewing Christmas presents,
    They're shopping at the mall;
    If they're not done and Christmas comes,
    There won't be gifts at all.


  7. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
    Just like that one we had one year.
    And when it snowed,
    The whole yard we rolled,
    To build our 6 inch tall snowman.

    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    Like no one's ever seen before.
    Where the snow hides the ground,
    The snowmen are round,
    It sounds impossible I know.

    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    When I say "white" I don't mean "brown".
    If it's not then I'll surely frooooown.
    So may all our Christmases be white

    Maybe I'll have another entry that is more rhythmicly correct. In the meantime, time to study!

  8. This tune is mixed with personal experience and the trials many people face.

    Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer's
    Supposed to have a shiny nose.
    That's if I ever found it.
    Maybe it is by the hose.

    I hate putting up these lights
    On the front lawn all these years
    And if you ever tried it
    You would prolly quit in tears.

    And one very dark cold night
    Sitting in the mud
    I had to test EVERY light
    To see which one's a dud.

    How come when one goes out
    They all decide to quit as well?
    I should just follow suit
    And quit before I scream and yell!


    Rudolph the red nosed reindeer's
    supposed to have a shiny nose....

    I didn't make it very far in studying... or anywhere at all, actually. P.S. Inspired by the fact that I had a tragic time with my future-mother-in-law's lawn decorations, involving reindeer and lights.(obviously)

  9. Allright jousters, we're coming to a close. I'll give you two more days to post.

  10. Well, these were all hilarious. I loved the Black Friday song and "Christmas Songs" song, but Samm's Rudolph Rendition takes the cake with the lost nose...
    Samm wins.
