Another Fractured Christmas Carol

Saturday, December 22, 2018

One of the things that lifts my spirits is writing new lyrics to songs. Here is one of my 2018 efforts:

I Saw Three Monkeys (to the tune of “I Saw Three Ships”)

I saw three monkeys swinging in
On Christmas Eve, on Christmas Eve!
I saw three monkeys swinging in
On Christmas Eve in the morning!

The monkeys ate bananas ripe
On Christmas Eve, on Christmas Eve!
The monkeys ate bananas ripe
On Christmas Eve at noontime!

They left the peelings on the roof
On Christmas Eve, on Christmas Eve!
They left the peelings on the roof
On Christmas Eve in the evening!

The reindeer slipped, the reindeer fell
On Christmas Eve, on Christmas Eve!
The reindeer slipped, the reindeer fell
On Christmas Eve at nightfall!

The monkeys cried and picked them up
On Christmas Eve, On Christmas Eve!
The monkeys cried and picked them up
On Christmas Eve at nightfall!

St. Nick was kind and merciful
On Christmas Eve, on Christmas Eve!
St. Nick was kind and merciful
On Christmas Eve at nightfall!

He left the monkeys ‘nanas ripe
For Christmas Day, for Christmas Day!
He left the monkeys ‘nanas ripe
For Christmas Day in the morning!

For Santa follows Christ, you see
On every day, on every day!
For Santa follows Christ, you see
Like Christmas Day in the morning!

So he loves sinners one and all
On every day, on every day!
He offers mercy to us all
On Christmas Day and all others!
