Songs that don't exist

One of the advantages of the Holiday Season being over and done is that I am less tempted to actually write the Christmas Carol filks that come into my head during the four or five weeks that the Christmas Carols are playing. I mean, you get to the point where everything sounds like a carol, don’t you? Or is it just me?

On the other hand, I really wanted to find a way to work in a reference to “Frosty the Shadchan”, which I still think is a very funny thing. Not funny enough to actually write it out (something with a bride made out of snow, and a dowry of tinsel, and maybe something about the groom breaking an icicle goblet) but definitely funny enough to work into a list of Chanukah songs or something.

Another one I wanted to pass along (but not write verses for) is just a sentence my Perfect Non-Reader said when reporting on her schoolfriends’ winter vacations, and the sentence just sounded like a song title: “Mohammed got a Wii for Christmas”

Mohammed got a Wii for Christmas
Mohammed got a Wii for Christmas
Mohammed got a Wii for Christma-as
I wish I were just like him

Just saying.
