Festive Fun

Merry Christmas everyone! 

One of my favorite memories growing up was making up new lyrics to old songs and jingles with my cousin Chandra.  We had fun new words to “The Flintstones”, “Sittin’ on Top of the Bay”, and so many others.  My boys find them hysterical, but they may not be too appropriate here.  Ha!  Anyway, here’s a new twist on a couple of old Holiday tunes to give you a smile in your holiday bustle.

Our best wishes to you and yours for a wonderfully fun and happy holiday season an abundant 2012.

Jody and family

Let it go!  Let it go!  Let it go!
(Tune of Let it Snow! Let is Snow!  Let it Snow!)

Though the schedule looks mighty frightful,
And our home is not respiteful,
And since we’re scrambling in the frenzied flow,
Let it go!  Let it go!  Let it go!

The ads show no sign of stoppin’,
The kids are bouncin’ and hoppin’,
My bank account screams out “NO!”,
Let it go!  Let it go!  Let it go!

When the credit cards near their blight,
How I hate going out in the store,
But if I can just get the right size,
Oh wait, no there’s 20 more!

I look at my list just sighing,
I hope all will be smiling,
But since you know I love you all so,
Let it go!  Let it go!  Let it go!

Rapid Ride
(Tune of Sleigh Ride)

Just here those charity bells jingle-ing, ring ting tingle-ing too!
Come on its freezing weather for a car ride together with you!
Outside the tow trucks callin’ and lists are callin’ yoou, yoo ho!
Come on its one more letter and a fun get together with you.

Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, let’s go,
Let’s get the show on the road, we’re running in a hurried land of snow.
Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, we’re slammed, just get in the van,
We’re off to mall and the scenes of a jolly, red, fat man.

Our cheeks are nice and rosy; the rum is flowing for me.
My worries dissipated as my mood’s elevated to glee.
Forget the road before us and enjoy a moment of ease,
And before you know it, it’ll all be over…PLEASE?!
