Correction

I can't believe I actually drew a blank on my favorite whimsical Christmas song! How could anyone forget this?

"I want a hippopotomus for Christmas...
Only a hippopotomus will do...
No crocodiles, no rhinauserouses...
I only like hippopotomuses...

And hippopotomuses like me too!"

And then there's one I discovered a couple of years ago...

"Lacey dreams, the wife is missin',
didn't ask for her permission...
I'm wearin' her clothes, silk pantyhose,
walkin' round in women's underwear.

In the store, there's a teddy,
with little straps, like spaghetti,
They hold me so tight, like handcuffs at night,
walkin' round in women's underwear.

In the office there's a guy named Melvin,
he pretends that I am Murphy Brown.
He'll say 'are you ready', we'll say, 'Whoa, man!
Let's wait until the wife is out of town!'"

(Obviously, there's another verse, but I can't remember it at the moment!)

I also love Amy Grant's version of 'O Little Town of Bethlehem' and 'Emmanual'; TranSiberian Orchestra's carols; and Manhein Steamroller. And nothing beats Gene Autry's 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'!

And the first song I ever learned to play on the organ, including foot pedals? 'The First Noel'. And my piano specialty? 'Do You Hear What I Hear' and 'The Little Drummer Boy'!

Okay, time to get in the shower and get ready for church! Got to redeem myself for quoting 'Walkin' Round in Women's Underwear', ha ha:)

Hey I have that CD. It's from Bob River's Twisted Christmas ("Walkin' 'Round in Woman's Underwear") to the tune of Winter Wonderland. Love it. My two favorite Bob Rivers are "The Twelve Pains of Christmas" and "The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen". I find myself inserting those word to the carols all the time, lol.

Thanks Brynn:) I never knew who sang that; used to hear it on my favorite radio station up in Indy. I have it on tape somewhere; will have to look for the CD! I also have "Spice Girls Got Run Over by a Reindeer" on tape somewhere, but can only listen to it once a year.
