"The Day SantaTurned Plumb Mean "





They put him in a rocket sleigh dressed in yellow and green

said kids are tired of red and white and the old fashioned scenes

they took away his luminance ,his yearly routine

no one saw it coming the day Santa turned plumb mean



(chorus)

They took away the jolly from jolly 'ol saint nick

left him without holly or peppermint sticks

they're taking away traditions cent-ur-ies old

next they'll want to forbid him from saying ho,ho , ho



They fired all his elves, said no they'd longer be a part

didn't give them the real reason that they were way too short

Now they've hired mariachis dressed in velvet green

just another reason the day Santa turned plumb mean



They made him shave his beard had him dye his hair

got him doin commercials for a brand of underwear

He was told to lose the belly fat to get trim and proper lean

this was more than he could take the day Santa turned plumb mean



(chorus)

They took away the jolly from jolly 'ol saint nick

left him without holly or peppermint sticks

they're taking away traditions cent-ur-ies old

next they'll want to forbid him from saying ho,ho , ho





He's rejected changing colors and making him lose weight

hated the rocket sleigh bit and hiding of his age

but when they wanted his reindeer that was the final straw

it not only made him mean but drove him up the wall



(chorus)

yes...They took away the jolly from jolly 'ol saint nick

left him without holly or peppermint sticks

they're taking away traditions cent-ur-ies old

even took his reindeer and his vibrant ho, ho, ho

they caused a worldly ruckus in the name of the almighty buck

watch out Easter bunny you could be next to be struck

(2x at end)

I love it. This is such a slap in the face to the anal politically correct movement that's been killing us today.  More power to you.
Very creative write, Gary.   Very enjoyable read.

Merry Christmas
