"The 12 Days of Christmas" Gone Wrong

I get song lyrics wrong all the time. I've got this hearing loss issue, you see. Reading about my major miscommunication with a little girl I once tested will prove that. So, it should come as no surprise to you that I misunderstood some of the lyrics from The 12 Days of Christmas.

Even Rudolph agreed these lyrics were wrong. I wish he would have told me a little earlier, though. Now I get to live with the fact that I have sung these lyrics horribly wrong at karaoke bars, impromptu concerts in the Break Room, solos in crowded elevators, etc. Sooooo embarrassed.


and a...

I've got it all straightened out now. Someone told me it wasn't "bear's tree" but "pear's tree".

At least I got all the other ones right.

*If you are one of the unfortunate souls that have been reading my blog since December 2010, you'll probably recognize these pictures from a post back then. I dug them back out just for you. And, also you.*
My post/graphic "What Toddlers REALLY Want For Christmas" just went up over at NickMom! Can you guess which four things I featured? :) Go HERE to see!

My post/graphic from NickMom titled "The ABCs of Raising Boys" got picked up by The Huffington Post yesterday afternoon and can be found HERE.

Thanks to all who read/share!

So awesome. Can't decide which is my favorite. Definitely a tie between #'s 1-12.

The last one made me laugh out loud. For real. In your honor, I will now and forever sing this song this way (I never sing this song). Ellen

I like the eleven pipers griping. So cranky, those pipers!

From one lyric botcher to another: Love it!

I used to think "Big Old Jet Airliner" was "We don't chat at a lineup."

What could that possibly even mean?

I have four pipers griping at my house. LOL so funny - I get it wrong all the time, too.

Your version is perfect!

Cracking up at 11 pipers griping and three French men. Also, is that Shannen Doherty among the eight maids a-bilking? That seems like something she'd do.

P.S. I thought that The GoGo's "Our Lips Are Sealed" was "Honest, I see you," until I was well into my 20's. So… yeah.

Comments make me feel like I'm not talking to the wall. Don't get me wrong. I love talking to walls. Some of my best friends are walls. Still, I like hearing from you, so thanks!
