Songs for the seasonally challenged III…

To the tune of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen:

God rest ye merry gentlemen…

There’ll be no rest for me!

I’ve got to cook and clean and wrap

And then put up the tree…

For Christmas cheer won’t make itself

That I can guarantee…

Oh, oh, we’ll bake the ‘comfort and joy’,

Wrap up a toy,

And that ruddy Christmas song will soon annoy…

*

“A woman’s work is never done”

And Christmas time is worst!

You never get a chance to breathe

For putting others first;

You cook and roast and decorate…

They eat until they burst!

Oh, all diets one Christmas will destroy,

Can you enjoy

Knowing e-e-lastic waistbands are a ploy..?

*

God rest ye merry gentlemen…

You ate the ruddy lot!

You stripped the turkey, ate the cheese,

And cleaned out every pot!

You drank the wine and fell asleep

After that second ‘shot’…

Oh, oh, tidying up is not a joy

Never a joy…

And sometimes I wish that I had been a boy.

    1. Nice to have something seasonal that I didn’t write myself. You know, I never realized that my mother’s refusal to learn to cook saved her soul. Instead of cooking, she painted and potted and hooked rugs. Whenever she offered, we all said “Gee mom, no thanks, we can do it ourselves!” And we DID. Why didn’t I think of that?

      1. I should have thought of it too. Only today, my son’s shock and horror when I said that, being ill, I’d have to buy a cake this year… only relieved when I assured him I’d bake the mince pies myself…
