Say What?!?---Christmas Carols Gone Wrong...

We've all had that moment where we're listening to a song and we've had to stop to do a double take, because something didn't sound quite right!!!

And this experience could go both ways...
                   You could be thinking....

Whaaaat?!? That doesn't make sense, maybe I'm crazy.....nahhh it's not me it's them! Singers these days...


You're like me, and you think somethings a bit off, but you just go ahead and keep on singing the song the way you want.

A word of advise to you! Find out what the correct lyrics are! Why? Well, for one the "Ohhhh" light bulb will go off in your head, and the song will make a heck of alot more sense. And two, being that it's the holiday season you have to know the correct lyrics to all the classic Christmas tunes, otherwise hard core carolers will kill you. Trust me, I know from experience. And let me tell you, that was the last time I ever walked around singing about "chipmunks roasting on an open fire".

So, here are some classic Holiday Song mess ups, that I myself have made. I've posted the correct lyrics too, along with the bad ones, so that you won't make the same mistakes as me!
Yep, you're welcome!


Wrong: "Chipmunks roasting on an open fire, chestnuts nibbling at your toes".

Correct: "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nibbling at your nose".

Ignore the somewhat awkward intro. And don't ask me what's going on, because I have no idea either....


Wrong: "Later on we'll perspire as we sing by the fire".

Correct: " Later on will conspire as we dream by the fire".

Who knew, right?


Very, very wrong: "The horses go left, the cats go right, let it snow, let it snow"!

Correct: Don't ask.... I don't even know where that came from...

(No link necessary....)
There's more songs that I have really, really messed up on, but I'm too embarrassed to post those up in public....

But wait! There's More!
Along with my great advise to remember your lyrics this holiday season, here is a play list of my favorite Christmas songs, that I literally listen to all year.........what can I say, I'm an elf!!!  ;)
