Deck the Halls (with Cookies)

I love a good lyrics parody, and I’ve written a few holiday-themed ones over time. I originally published this a few years ago, but the lyrics are perhaps even more relevant than they were back then (especially the wine drinking part)! If you have kids, a small kitchen, and find yourself running out of places to put cookies every year, you might find something here that resonates.

(Sung to the tune of “Deck the Halls”)

Deck the house with clouds of flour (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
Cookies piling higher each hour (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
Lo, the scent of gingerbread (Fa la la, la la la, la la la)
Six more batches before bed (Fa la la la la, la la la la)

Dishes in the sink are mounting (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
Yet again the timer’s sounding (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
There’s no place for this new batch (Fa la la, la la la, la la la)
I have the biggest cookie stash (Fa la la la la, la la la la)

Now the kids are high on icing (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
Mama needs a drink of Reisling (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
One drink might not be enough (Fa la la, la la la, la la la)
Mmm, this is really good shtuff… (Fa la la la la, la la la la)

Help I think I’ve made too many (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
Cookie plates will be aplenty (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
All the cookies need to go-oh (Fa la la, la la la, la la la)
Look outside now there is snow! (Fa la la la la, la la la la)

Now the cookie baking’s over (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
And my stint as a composer (Fa la la la la, la la la la)
Here’s to you and your full kitchen (Fa la la, la la la, la la la)
And your holiday traditions! (Fa la la la la, la la la la)

 

~~~Merry Yule!~~~

      1. It went pretty well. Had to find a version without too much embellishment worked into it. Some get really carried away! Made me slow down and enjoy the lyrics all that much more. (Shtuff, heh.) 🙂

Have something to say? I'd love to hear it!
