My New Favorite Xmas Carol

Borrowed from the original, “The Christmas Song,’ written in 1945 by Bob Wells and Mel Tormé, it’s more commonly known as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire.”

Feel free to sing this repeatedly … but be warned, it may become and “ear worm” throughout your Happy Holidays … Oops, I mean “Merry Christmas.”



Trump nuts roasting on an open fire …

Bob Mueller nipping at his toes

West Wing staffers “sing,” but not in a choir

Wonderin’ who’s wired from foot to nose.


We all know he is the biggest Turkey

He helps himself to all that he can steal

Tiny little fingers sending tweets that are snarky

While he dines on his Big Mac MAGA meal.


He knows that prison’s on its way

Filled with pred-a-tory sexers out to play

And every woman’s sure to cast her vote

To see if we can dump him from our boat.


And to Mueller we offer this simple plea

“Lock ‘em up” until he’s 93.

You know it’s been said many times many ways

He’s a big fat liar with his pants ablaze.


And so I’m offering us this simple thought

To all who really, really care

We’ll shout and shout when he’s finally caught …

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas … to us!


Yeah … I know … if I had a “Day Job,” I shouldn’t quit it.

Merry Christmas to all … and to all a Good Life!

Just sayin’ …

    • Aha, Oops … You are aware of my fatal flaw … never being able to carry a tune has never stopped me from bellowing out a good song and ruining it!

      Thanks for reading … and for the compliment.

    • Hi Rachel … Thanks Yuggely and Biggly for reading my stuff. I barely grasped the rhyme scheme … the meter left me in the dust … but I had fun learning that lyrics are above my “pay grade.”
