Lyrics
F in Father Christmas
F in Father Christmas
There's an "F" in Father Christmas
Can't you tell?

There's an "F" in Father Christmas.
'Cos if there's no "F" in Father Christmas,
They'd be- 'ather Christmas
Can't you spell?

Need I say more?
..apparently yes .. lol. Thanks Charlene. The choir I used herein is "Boldt"'s- it's a free plug-in for GB. As for more stanzas, well maybe next year I'll re-visit but to make do here is some of my own poetry as explanation:

"I can't be R.S.D.
It's little fun you see,
To write eloquently,
I can't B R.S.D.

If I could B R.S.D.
I'd make a cup of T,
Write "ARSED" for all to see,
But I can't B R.S.D.

So I write cryptically,
And save my energy,
Charge my B-8-TER-E
'Cos I can't B R.S.D.

If I won the lottery,
I'd save the world- save a tree,
But this is pure fantasy,
'Cos I still can't be R.S.D.

So I embrace my lethargy,
To the utmost degree,
F N GR8 poetry,
R.S. bloody D." by APB.

I've already started on updating it for next year: bells was obviously missing and I have a real walking bass line to record. But I wanted to share the demo form... or I might not make xmas. Oh to have the speed of Santa... lol.

Thanks Joachim

some balance is needed from time to time: I'm certain there is an audience for this type of Christmas song ... I'll need a kids choir to finish it, so I can go "sing it kids!" and off they go .. lol.

Estella!
glad you could relate and laugh- I find it's lack of great literary content and jolly music is indicative of the dichotomy of Christmas ..(!) er.. or something like that ;o) Kept my spirits up anyway, lol.. belated "God Jul" and a "Gott Nytt År" from Sweden to you and yours.

This is insane!
Insanely funny that is... Sorry I didn't hear it before Christmas, but I was in my bunker, waiting until the worst of it was over, before emerging into the light again. As for more stanzas (Char's suggestion), I like the additional verses you wrote in your reply to her, but I think if you add more, the overall length should remain the same. Basically, I'm talking about singing super quickly, like a chipmunk, since everyone knows that the true meaning of Christmas is chipmunks.

Nice post! Happy New Year!

apb said 2513 days ago (January 2nd, 2011)
Thanks and long time no see!
if I got a giggle or smirk even, I was content. Ah, my reply to Char was not actually additional stanzas for this, just I reply on my general apathy .. I have since actually added some church bells (how I missed them the first time round I'll never know lol) and some other more serious verses to this already but I'll wait until next year to re-visit properly. I like your idea of speeding it up to keep it short .. but Chipmunks? Nah .. lol. Happy New Year to you and yours! Hope to read more and hear more from you round the jams in 2011!!
