Sue’s Songs For The Seasonally Challenged – Santa Baby

A couple of weeks back Sue Vincent rewrote the lyrics to We Three Kings in her own festive way, and I felt compelled to sing and record it…

She’s done it again, but this time Eartha Kitt’s Santa Baby!

If you remember a couple of years ago, I had already sung this one, the original version… you can check it out here.

And here are Sue’s amended lyrics, sung by me!

Excuse the artistic license here and there, and at the end, as there were less lyrics than music!

 
Santa baby, I’d like to have a quick word or two,
With you,
Now you’ve not much to do, Santa baby,
My Christmas stocking felt a bit light…
Santa honey, I know that you brought chocolate and cheese…
I’m pleased…
But the dog ate all these, Santa baby,
Perhaps we could redress this tonight?
Think of all the sites I’d see
If you would just deliver me an SUV…
Four wheel drive, economy…
Just park it under the cherry tree.
Oh, Santa cutie, my clutch is really on its way out,
I’ll pout,
If I can’t get about, Santa baby,
So let’s see if we can’t make it right.
Don’t expect it all for free…
I’ll even buy a ticket for the lottery…
Help me out and I’ll desist
From publishing those photos of the Mom’s you kissed!
Ho, Santa baby, I’m not sure Mrs Santa would care
To share
All that ‘mistletoe fare’, Santa baby
So hurry down my chimney tonight.


Hope you enjoy! ❤

Sue’s Songs For The Seasonally Challenged – We Feel Ill…

Sue Vincent, over at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo blog is feeling ill… She has been rewriting traditional Christmas songs with her own very special lyrics, and yesterday’s offering was a verse to be sung to the tune of We Three Kings.

It resonated.

Why?

Because after not feeling too unwell so far this month, two kind children came in yesterday with the coughs and colds from Hell!!

Seriously!

And I sat in bed last night, unable to sleep as my chest congested, and today, well, my nose has been dripping like a tap that needs a washer changed!

To top it off, it was also Christmas Jumper Day for the Save the Children charity. Mine happened to have Rudolph on it, and by the end of the day, I had the red nose to match!

Anyway, back to Sue and her great words… well, yesterday, I just had to sing them as I read them, and I mentioned to Sue that I crooned away… and threatened to record the song… and she welcomed the idea (crazy woman!) so, bunged-up, and sore-throated, I sang…

And here is the result! Click the link below to hear me making a fool of myself!

And the words, if you want to join in!


Dog and mistress suffering are,
Fever-ridden, stuffed with catarrh…
Snuffling, sneezing,
Coughing, wheezing,
Feeling quite under par…
Oh…ohh…
*
Chorus:
Got the lurgy, don’t feel great…
Christmas chores are running late,
Early closing?
Should be dozing!
Think that we should hibernate…
 *
Dog’s complaining ‘cause I won’t go
Out for walks in frost, fog and snow,
She is seething,
I’m not breathing…
So much for ‘ho, ho, ho’.
Oh…ohh
*
Chorus
*
In the shed the tree’s still in store,
Baubles, tinsel, angels galore,
They can stay there,
I just don’t care!
Feeling too stiff and sore…
Oh…ohh…
*
Chorus
*
Haven’t baked a cake or mince pie,
I should make the effort and try,
Guests arriving,
Feel I’m skiving,
Think I’ll curl up and cry…
Oh…ohh…
*
Chorus
*
No gifts wrapped for Santa Claus’ sleigh,
Christmas cheer? Not much here today,
Nose is glowing
And it’s snowing…
… I need a holiday…
  Oh…ohh…
*
Got the lurgy, don’t feel great…
Christmas chores are running late,
Early closing?
Should be dozing!
Think that we should hibernate…

Something even more fun, while rooting through old things at home, I found an old vinyl copy of this song!

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes
Will soon be turning red
Crying’s not for me ’cause,
I’m never gonna stop the rain
By complaining,
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me
It won’t be long
Till happiness
Steps up to greet me

And today, I nominate my bloglings,  Rich and Erika! Because it’s all about the music, and I know you two luuuurve music!
