Dog House Blog, The First Day After Christmas!



The first day after Christmas 

The first day after Christmas
My true love and I had a fight 
And so I chopped the pear tree down 
And burnt it, just for spite 
Then with a single cartridge 
I shot that blasted partridge 
My true love, my true love, 
my true love gave to me. 

The second day after Christmas 
I pulled on the old rubber gloves 
And very gently wrung the necks 
Of both the turtle doves 
My true love, my true love, 
my true love gave to me. 

On the third day after Christmas 
My mother caught the croup 
I had to use the three French hens 
To make some chicken soup 

The four calling birds were a big mistake 
For their language was obscene 
The five golden rings were completely fake 
and turned my fingers green. 

The sixth day after Christmas 
The six laying geese wouldn't lay 
So I sent the whole darn gaggle to the 
R.S.P.C.A. 

On the seventh day, what a mess I found 
The seven swans-a-swimming all had drowned 
My true love, my true love, 
my true love gave to me. 

The eighth day after Christmas 
Before they could suspect 
I bundled up the 
Eight maids-a-milking 
Nine ladies dancing 
Ten lords-a-leaping 
Eleven pipers piping 
Twelve drummers drumming - well, actually I kept one of the dancing ladies - 
And sent them back collect 
I wrote my true love 
We are through, love! 
And that is all I said.

  6. I am totally, totally impressed. Miz Molly, you are a lyricist, a natural-born satirist and a beautiful little girl. You look pooped out my friend, and I suspect you had a marvelous Christmas party! Hugs to you dear and wonderful friends, who I missed greatly while I was away from my computer. But did we ever have a super time with our families in SUNNY California! LOVE! Anita
