about

Broke out the festive holiday punch bowl to ensure none of the cups had developed a leak... Invited some fantastic UK artists/friends to assist (after all, there are 12 cups to the set). About 3 hours it became increasingly obvious (at least to us) a holiday recording was mandatory ...

The result is an 8+MINUTE FREEBIES download of lighthearted holiday dance, funk, hip hop, not to mention a few NON TRADITIONAL lyrics... Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa, St. Lucia Day, Eid al-Fitr, Yule or nothing at all ... accept this as my seasonal gift to you!

This is an ABSOLUTELY FREE DOWNLOAD (click BUY NOW and enter 0.00 ) ... but you do have the option of entering any amount......

The intent of this video is entertainment, social commentary and parody. This video is not (and will not be) monetized and is neither for sale nor intended as a download.

The audio will initially be a "freebies" download through selected providers and will eventually be offered for sale and/or inclusion on an album (download or disc).

lyrics

Medley includes:
JOY TO THE WORLD (VICTORIANA CHRISTMAS)
Joy to the world, let all the angels sing
Victoriana Christmas is really quite a thing
People people everwhere, trundle through the snow
Everybody everywhere, what a way to go
Hustle bustle, buy a gift, get that stocking stuffed
Time is at a premium, never have enough.
Holly berries, popcorn, too, decorate the tree.
Hang a wreath wrap a gift, there's no time for me
To do the things I gotta do
There just isn't time, so let me introduce the girls
Their singing is sublime... LAAAAADEEEEEEES....

JINGLE BELLS, SHOTGUN SHELLS
Jingle bells, shotgun shells, bullets in the air
New York Christmas, Five Points, WOW
Dead rabbits everywhere.
Bill the Butcher, William Tweed, leaders right or wrong
Immigration even then was something very strong.
Dash through Paradise Square , with Bill the Butcher bright
Cross Orange, Worth and Mulberry, L'il Water's right at night.
Gang warfare was in vogue, except at Christmas season
When all gangeland just joined hands
And danced for any reason.

DECK THE HALLS (ZOMBIE FREAKIN' CHRISTMAS)
Decorate the halls with entrails, bowels and holly
(fa la la la la la la la la )
Zombie freaking Christmas, OH by gosh and by golly.
(fa la la la la la la la la )
Dress me up, take me out, zombies on the run
(fa la la la la la la la la )
Best damn gift I ever got, a brand new ZombieGun!
(fa la la la la la la la la )
zombie gun (X 4)

RUDOLPH THE RED, A VERY NOSY REINDEER
Rudolph the Red, a very nosy reindeer
Wouldn't have it any other way
Dasher, Donder, Blitzen, very ugly reindeer
Cause Rudolph's pullin' Santa's sleigh
Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid gone and had it
Santa called on Rudi, just the luck
Couldn't wait to get the rednose back inside the barn
To teach him that he really shouldn't
(mess around with what they're doin')
YOU thought I was gonna say.........
AH AH AH
It's Christmas!

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS (refrain)
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

AULD LANG SYNE
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

GOLDEN SLIPPERS (almost traditional)
Oh them golden slippers, oh, them golden slippers
Golden slippers I'm gonna wear because they look so neat
Oh them golden slippers, oh, them golden slippers
Golden slippers I'm gonna wear to walk this golden street

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year!
