Songs for the seasonally challenged…

To the tune of ‘We Three Kings’…

 Image result for rudolph has a  cold cartoon

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…

    I remember the old version from school;
    We three kings of orient are, one in a taxi one inbva car,
    one on a scooter papping his hooter, smoking a big cigar. 🎅

    Sorry you’re so poorly, Sue, but your alternative carol did make me smile. Unfortunately, I feel I’ll be hearing the chorus as an ear worm for some time to come.
