Debuting a New Holiday Song!

 

I confess: I LOVE Christmas music! Serious. Secular. Funny. I love ’em all.

This is one of my faves.

 

I also love writing poetry, especially in the form of song parody.

Today I had some free time, and this happened.

Enjoy. Or laugh. Just don’t blow snot on my computer.

Graybie Baby

Is laying under the Christmas tree

He sees

A shine bauble and then

Graybie Baby

knocks the Christmas tree on its’ side

christmas-lights-christmas-light-clipart-3

Graybie Baby

Chews up all of the tinsel too

Then pukes blue

I was up all night with you

Graybie Baby

You sure know how to do Christmas right *heavy sigh*

Christmas fun is not to be missed

These cats are all in, they’ve amassed quite a list

They calm down when told to be good

Then they’re right back at it; Lord, I am PISSED!

Graybie Baby

When I am mad to my leg he’ll cling

And sing

He says he is a good boy

Graybie Baby

I gotta hand it to ya, you’re right!

  1. I needed a laugh tonight. So, thanks.

    Do you have a very favorite piece of Christmas music? If it’s too hard to pick, then two favorites.

      1. I would have been horribly disappointed had you been able to narrow it down to one.

        If you haven’t already, try Monteverdi’s, “Selva morale”–the Gloria in particular. Not Handel, no, but a delight to listen to all the same.

      2. I had not even heard of this collection before! What I know about classical music I’ve learned from encounters with people such as you and by listening to public radio. So thank you. I listened to part of a performance by Concierto de Gabriel Garrido y Ensemble Elyma on YouTube. Do you recommend a particular performance? I will download and listen to it at work. That ought to keep me awake!

      3. The performance that you listened to is my favorite by far. Usually, a visual can be distracting but in this case, the audio/visual interplay makes it even more mesmerizing. It’s especially good because the performers present such strong caricatures, as if they were hand-selected expressly for a video recording. Three other single selections to add to your Christmas list, all of which I am sure that you’ve heard: “O Mio Bambino Caro,” “Nessun Dorma,” and “Ombra Mai Fu.” (I have a weakness for Puccini, any time of year. And when I think I’ve cried my last tear because this world has exhausted the reservoir, these last three get me going again. Every time!)

      4. Most excellent. I hope you can add one or all to your list of favorites and eventually is soon enough. But you’re right, of course: nothing breathes passion like, “The Messiah.” Brings me to my knees and then some. But there are times when I’d rather stand up and laugh so I will continue to hum your re-write and thank you for it!

  2. I like the song also and your parody really good. Gotta love them. Mischievous though they are. I had one I just knew was going to be sick sneaking under the tree and drinking its’ water. Whatever it was full of he didn’t mind one bit. 🙂

      1. Nope! But even so my thought was that it couldn’t be good because of sap and pine needles. Would never use any kind of a chemical around my pets.

  3. Love it! I’ve the new kitten – he thinks we are absolutely insane to put this giant toy in the living room. Yes, Lumi, it is ALL FOR YOU.

    Even the broom when I sweep up the mess you make 🙂
