Cracked Christmas Carols---A Fun Game

  1. OK, I know it's a little early, but one of my favorite things to do is take popular songs and write new and funny lyrics for them. Christmas songs especially lend themselves to this treatment; I've probably re-done the "12 Days of Christmas" at least a dozen times, and once when I was only in 7th grade, I did an entire concert's worth of "Pumpkin Carols" for Halloween. (Yeah, I really DO have enough to do......but every so often, my mind runs amok, and sometimes the results are pretty good.:wink2: ) This is something like they used to have on the old Bullwinkle cartoon show, "Fractured Fairy Tales"........only I call 'em "Cracked Christmas Carols".

    Anyway, to start the holiday season off right, here's one I just came up with as a tribute to Willamette Valley winter, sung to the tune of "Silver Bells":

    Wind and rain,
    What a pain,
    It's wintertime in the Valley,
    Not much sun,
    Ain't no fun,
    When will the spring come again?

    Leaf-filled gutters,
    Creaky shutters
    Getting all kinds of warped,
    In the air, there's the odor of mildew
    People sniping, children griping,
    And there's mud everywhere,
    And amid all this nonsense you'll see........

    Wind and rain etc.

    Quickly dashing
    between splashes
    My hair sports quite a frizz,
    Like a cat, I hate unscheduled showers
    Hear the cars crunch, watch the cops bunch
    At the accident scene
    And thanks to this downpour you'll see

    Wind and rain
    I'm going insane,
    It's wintertime in the Valley
    It ain't no fun
    For anyone
    When will the spring come again?
    Oh, when will the spring come again?


    Now, it's YOUR turn.........take a well-known holiday tune and add new words to make a funny song. Be creative, and enjoy!!

    The ones I have violate the TOS of this board and would probably get me fired. As soon as I find one that does neither, it's all yours.

    P.S. Can you tell the surgical residents ticked me off last night?????

    It wasn't too bad, but you can only hit your head against a brick wall so much. Someone asked me to fill out her part of a death certificate and left the hospital (not the floor, the hospital). Ummmmm . . . . . .no! I can't sign it for you and I don't know your license number either. In all the time you spent whining and b^$*#ing, it could have been signed and the pt's body delivered downstairs for the funeral home. (Instead of three hours later.) Minor setback, the rest of the night wasn't too bad, but what the heck?

    hmmm. To the tune of "Jingle Bells" (start with dashing thru the snow)

    Dashing through the halls,
    On my run-down nursing shoes,
    Numerous patient calls,
    Whatever will I do?

    No time to take a break,
    No time to even eat,
    Oh for heaven's sake,
    I'm feeling really beat

    Oh! Calling bells, calling bells
    Their ringing all the time,
    To disconnect or disable them would surely be a crime...

    Here's one short verse - maybe others can add some more?

    To the tune of "Deck the Halls...." (which I hope is a universal carol or it will be wasted!)

    Deck the wards with body fluids
    tra la la la la la la la la
    Inco pads & pools of urine
    Tra la la la .........
    Change that dressing
    Take that drain out
    Tra la la la ........
    Oh what fun we have in nursing
    Tra la la ...........

    Sung to "The Little Drummer Boy"

    Come, they told me. The day's just begun.
    The state is here. I've got to be on the run.
    The charting audits are a really big chore.
    I'd hide but state reps are behind every door.
    Behind every door
    Behind every door
    Then they eyeballed me! I broke in a sweat.
    My Poise got wet.

    Now to top it all off a patient codes Blue.
    That is compressions for me, mouth-to-mouth for you.
    Is that a five-to-one or fourteen-to-two?
    It's been so long ago I haven't a clue.
    I haven't a clue
    I haven't a clue
    Wait! The charge nurse is here. Be still my heart.
    "DNR's in the chart."

    Though the day is 'most done, I've admissions to do.
    "ED is stacked up. It's really a zoo!"
    Why do they send all of their troubles to me?
    Don't they realize that I get off at three?
    I get off at three
    I get off at three
    Then they ask me if I'll stay overtime.
    Is killing a crime?
