The TWELVE (NOT the TOP TEN) DAYS of CHRISTMAS (2017 version)

 

 


THE 12 DAYS of CHRISTMAS  (2017 version)

 

For the uninitiated who want to sing this version around their Christmas tree (also approved for Hanukkah celebrations), here is how the traditional “12 Days” is sung: 

You sing each of the song’s 12 lines, in ascending numerical order.   But then you only repeat the “gifts” already received.   For example:

 Start the song with “On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: a partridge in a pear tree.”

 But here is how your verse would sound in mid-song:

 “On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: six geese-a-laying, five go-o-o-ld rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.”

 Try that format with today’s creation, below.  Note that singers are expected to dra-a-ag out the syllables on the gift of the “5th Day of Christmas,”in this case “Five Gor – such – es.” 

 

 

– On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

 

       –  A tax cut for you and for me.

 

– On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

 

         – Two Frankens leer- ing .
