Christmas Carols: The Game

A couple years back, I posted my ten favorite Christmas carols. That kicked off a lively discussion about hippopotami, ruffies and an all-around hatred for Christmas Shoes. This year, I'm going to play a game with you guys. A Christmas Carol lyrics game. And you get to not just guess, but help us try go stump others. We'll play this kinda like our alphabet or wish stomping game... when you guess the answer, you also list a lyric for the next folks to guess.

So... if I post "No crocodiles or rhinoceros-es-es. I only like hippopotamus-es-es. And hippopotamuses like me too!"

You post your answer - "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"

Then you post the next carol lyric. "He led them down the streets of town right to the traffic cop."

The next person guesses "Frosty the Snowman" and we continue. Got it? Hopefully we can play trivia all day! Okay, here's the first song lyric...

"I did a dance on mommy's plants, climbed a tree and tore my pants, filled that sugar bowl with ants, somebody snitched on me!"

Let the games begin! One lucky player will win a Christmas anthology! (although, admittedly, I probably won't ship it until after Christmas.)

"Nuttin for Christmas"

"She'd been drinking too much egg nog
And we begged her not to go
But she'd left her medication
So she stumbled out the door into the snow"

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer!

12 packs of bud
11 wrestling tickets
10 of Copenhagen
9 years probation
8 table dancers
7 packs of Red Man
6 packs of Spam
5 flannel shirts
4 big mud tires
3 shotgun shells
2 huntin' dogs
And some parts to a Mustang GT

Yeah, it's the 12 Days of Christmas, but which one by whom? *big evil grin*

Redneck 12 Days of Christmas by Jeff Foxworthy Love this one! :-)

Bells will be ringing, the glad, glad news;
Oh, what a Christmas, to have the blues;
My baby's gone

And if you haven't heard White Trash Christmas by Zack Tison do yourselves a favor and watch this video. Sit through the pre's worth it! (and it isn't the version you've heard before unless you're a Rick and Bubba fan)

"Bells will be Ringing"

Want a plane that loops the loop

I still want a hula hoop

The Christmas Song by Alvin & the Chipmunks!

"And by the light of that same star, Three Wise Men came from country far."

The first Noel

Carve the turkey turn the ballgame on
Mix Bloody Marys cause we all want one
Send somebody to the Stop 'n Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprite
A box of midol, some Salem Lights
Hallelujah everybody say cheese

Christmas with the Family.

What's with all the rednecky songs, y'all? There might be some non-southern players out there!

"There's a tree at the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well. The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow."

"It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas"

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you'd check off my Christmas list

"Santa Baby"

The sun is shining, the grass is green
The orange and palm trees sway
There's never been such a day
In Beverly Hills, L.A.

But it's December the 24th
And I'm longing to be up North...

"White Christmas"

Your sole is a appalling dump heap
Overflowing with the most disgraceful
Assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable,
Mangled up in tangled up knots.
