Description
A joyful song for the holiday season. I grew up on Weird Al and Dr. Demento, so this comes naturally to me. I wrote the lyrics for this a few years back for a boss going on a hunting trip over the Christmas break...we all sang it as a carol to him before he left. (The caroling wasn't my idea, but it was funny.) I finally decided it was time to make a real song out of it...just in time to ruin your Christmas. Ho Ho Ho!

Lyrics
Shots ring out
Are you listening?
On the snow
Blood is glistening.
A beautiful site, sportman's delight
Hunting in a Winter Wonderland.

Blown away
There goes Bambi
Bringing home
Meat for the family.
Having a ball, its head for my wall
Hunting in a Winter Wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a corn stand.
And pretend that we are Green Berets.
If all we come back with is empty beer cans
We'll talk about the one that got away.

Heading home
With the carcass
Testosterone rushing through us.
Then put up the gear, we'll go back next year
Hunting in a Winter Wonderland.

Very funny, blamm. I especially like the lyric "Heading home with the
carcass/Testosterone rushing through us."

Nothing says Mery Christmas like a dead animal. :-)

For the right price, this can be the theme to the NRA Christmas party this year.
That's not above me. Thanks!

Wonderful...
...John Denver-ish quality to your voice here... A youthfulness and
innocence in the sound that helps the lyrics to sound even funnier...

If a trifle disturbed...

Well written, well played, well sung, well recorded....

Vantastic
This is great fun, excellent lyrics John. Reminds me of all my neighbor hunters and their carnage, where I grew up in NY. The Green Beret / one that got away lyrics cracked me up, as did the testosterone line.

The boys are in secondary school, and have lots of friends who go
hunting. This kind of stuff is right up their alley. Thanks for sharing.

Nothing Says "I Love You" like a bloody head
Masterful. I too enjoyed the gruesome lyrics coming from the voice of the
guy next door. It's all too real . . .

Clearly,
there is room for at least two funny Christmas songs on MacJams
this year, & I can safely predict that there will be at least a third
before December 25th, 2005. I really enjoyed this and laughed a
lot. I love Christmas and hate hunting but really saw the funny
side of this. Consistently clever and well performed. Reminds me
of similar approaches to 'We wish you a merry Christmas' ('We
wish you weren't living with us') & 'Deck the Halls' ('Grabs your
balls like Michael Jackson'). Does anyone know who recorded
those?

I've got the answer…
Actually, I've just found the answer to my question: Bob Rivers and
Twisted Radio's I Am Santa Claus. Also includes 'Walkin' 'Round in
Women's Underwear' (to the tune 'Walking In A Winter Wonderland'),
'Didn't I Get This Last Year?' (based on "Do You Hear What I Hear"), and
one that is similarly themed to yours, 'I Came Upon a Roadkill Deer'.
Sorted!

I've got the answer…
I suppose noting that I'm a vegetarian who's never hunted a day in his life would add to this a bit. However, I do live in the country where deer are constantly crossing the yard and gunshots echoing in the area are the norm...so not a huge stretch. Oh, and I love the Bob Rivers Christmas stuff.

Hah!
Sounds like a mix of Weird Al's "The Night Santa Went Crazy" and Tom
Lehrer's "Hunting Song".
Funny stuff.
Nice production and performance, too.

Nice change up there.
No need for me to watch out for any stray bullets. Nice job on the production. Nice voice.

holiday freshness
Clever and funny and recorded with a holiday freshness. My only critical feedback on the lyrics is to question the last line ("Then put up the gear, we'll go back next year"), which seems anticlimactic. I want to know what happens to the carcass - does the beast become the Christmas feast? Or maybe something like "We'll put up the antlers to welcome deer-lovin' Santa." Well - just a minor thought about some finely-written satirical lines. I'll have to share it with my deerstalking brother-in-laws.

Twisted smirk
Disturbed, you are! Very funny indeed, from another closet Dr.
Demento fan (I think Star Drek is still my all-time favorite.) My only
critique is that your singing occasionally gets slightly ahead of the
music. But maybe you were just trying to dodge the Cows with Guns?
Great stuff, definitely gotta play this one to my kids (I've already
infected my son with the Doctor!)
ttfn,
Drakonis

Great stuff!
I, too, grew up on Weird Al, though not as much on Dr. Demento (the great discoverer). This was great. Sending this to a few "hunters" I know.
