    I don't think those lyrics fit the music. You should do "because on this time next year" instead, since that adds an extra syllable. "As we all attend" just doesn't work though and I have no idea how to fix that.

    I think they work fine. My recording was weak, but it sounded right in rehearsal. Done properly it's syncopate a bit, which fits the style of the song in any case.

    Well, FlareStorm directed me here, why complain about having two threads to try and get help. ;)

    ---------

    A Christmas Strain.

    Shortly before xmas, as loud as a stoush,
    Night Shift Guy shouted; "I hit 'im, I got the mouse!"

    Fist like a thunderbolt, I punched the air.
    I had to start dancing like ol' Fred Astaire.

    "Damn I am good. In fact, I am great!"
    "A throw of Sues' stapler, and I sealed the rats fate."

    The euphoria over, I sat down and said;
    "This shift is a mugs games, why aren't I in bed."

    Well sod it all then, I decided to nap.
    Poured half a sugarless Redbull - a favourite nightcap.

    I glared at the screen, my old enemy.
    If it woke me -Kick!- to the nineteenth century.

    Barely adrift, I had to wake due to clatter.
    "Well the managers office fell down. Does it matter?"

    I tried to sleep again, squeezing shut my eyes,
    And dreamed of Scarlett Johansson - oh the lie!

    No what happened next, was the start of my pain.
    St Nick walked on in, the head of his train.

    "Christ, Rudolf, christ. What an awful dry run."
    "It's simple, while I drink you steer, are you dumb?"

    He turned to me, quite visably soaked.
    "Can you believe this? You'd swear they were doped."

    I was standing agap, looking at the mess.
    I could feel my brain activly trying to repress.

    The redbull was off, that must be it.
    Making me dream of all of this -

    "Hic! Now don't worry, I know what your thinking."
    "but the building was in the way, so no hairsplitting."

    "You can't sue NORAD. They're too high up."
    "So your lawyers can just suck it up, buttercup."

    "Plus, it me who holds the cards - and all the gifts."
    The hole in the wall -you seal the rift."

    I looked at the ol' boy. Gee he was smug.
    Any second now, he dance like a jitterbug.
    His beady eyes narrowed, he stared at me grim.
    "Don't I recall you from way back sonny jim?"

    "That night before xmas, you were a nipper."
    "Your family forgot to leave me some liquor."

    "Tut-tut." he tutted, while shaking his head.
    "A cold night, me thirsty and you warm in bed."

    "You kicked your cat. Or your sister or brother."
    "At least one of them, you tried to smother."

    "And only tonight, you try to off Mickey."
    "Thankfully missing him, you blasted useless ninny."

    "Well screw you jack. Your xmas is over."
    "When i'm done with you, you'll think it's October."

    "Come Prancer, come Dancer, come er, Dopey and Doc."
    "This guys a loser, though he thinks he's top **** - what a crock."

    -------

    Just need a final two lines, and a stack of editting for improvements. Any ideas? It's just a bit of fun for work.

    Quix,

    Ran into a bit of a problem when I was trying to record my video of my Quixmas carol--my stupid digital camera won't record the audio! It says it can, but if worst comes to worst, and I can't get it to work, I'll just post the lyrics here.

    I did donate a bag of food to the Food Bank. Do you need to see the receipt? I can scan it and email it to you.

    I have a Kodak easy-share video camera, btw.

    That is a bad act; not a naughty act. Naughty acts involve lingerie, hot women, and pics that are NSFW. ;)

    Santa Quix had guests for the past few days, but will be tabulating and updating the current scores today and tomorrow. And if you are having audio difficulties with your recording, feel free to use a website that allows you to make your own movies using cartoons - they count, too.

    I'm revising Newt Christmas slightly for the Iowa Primaries.


    I'm dreaming of a Newt Quixmas
    Just like the one from 94
    When dems were vanquished
    And felt the anguish
    to see Newt's Contract take the floor

    I'm dreaming of a Ron Paul Quixmas
    With every campaign check I write
    May your votes be libertarian right
    And may all your candidates be white

    I'm dreaming of a Mitt Quixmas
    With each attack ad that I see
    May we live in a Mormon theocracy
    And may tax breaks all accrue to me


    I'm dreaming of a Bachmann Quixmas
    There's room for more insanity
    Can we outlaw homosexuality?
    Want to try - vote for her or Rick Perry

    Well, I'll have to try for next year. Couldn't get the camera to record audio and was too busy shopping & wrapping presents to go to one of those websites. Also didn't have enough time to even post the lyrics!!

    Not a problem. I've been a bit busy and my internet connection has been spotty, so the final tally will be up in the next few days.
