The Lyrics

Grunge optimism...if there is such a thing.
My Christmas tree
Standing there
The needles loose
And everywhere
I miss the lights
And bulbs galore
I sadly haul it
Out the door

So long, so long, so long, so long, all gone
All gone, all gone, all gone, all gone, Jan one
Jan one, Jan one, Jan one, Jan one, been fun
Been fun, been fun, been fun, been fun

To the tree I’m
Quite allergic
Wipe the floor down
With detergent
I was happy
I was content
But I wonder
Where the year went

Yes, we had snow.
Did the lights glow?
What do I know?
Ipso facto

I reflect on
A ham sandwich
With mayonnaise
Gifts underneath
The branches green
Reminds me of
A Rockwell scene

He drew, he drew, he drew, he drew, adieu
Adieu, adieu, adieu, adieu, to you
To you, to you, to you, you, et tu.
Et tu, et tu, et tu, et tu

And the new year
Seems so spacious
And the first days
Are the strangest
No, we can’t see
What awaits us
I just hope I’ll
Be more gracious

What I’m eating
Where I’m meeting
No more speeding
And more reading

I’ll minimize
All of the waste
I know, it’s hard
It takes a while
Three hundred days
And sixty-five
I hope this year
To stay alive

Survive, survive, survive, survive, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, will I
Will I, will I, will I, will I, get by
Get by, get by, get by, get by

As I clean up
All the past cheer
I’m reminded
Of the frontier
I shall go forth
And show no fear
And go boldly
Through the new year

No complaining
Do some painting
What’s remaining?

I have to admit, after reading this again, this is a pretty strange parody. I think I was doing Kurt Cobain stream of consciousness...the mind doth wander. And, no, I'm not on heroine. Really...

Good one - especially liked speeding/reading

PS It's great to be on heroine - as long as she's not on heroin :)

Are you kidding me? You must be on heroin, man! Mayonnaise on Ham? Are you serious? Mustard, mustard, mustard!!! ;-)

A little strange maybe, but still pretty good. Always liked that OS for some reason.

One of the better SLTS parodies I've seen in a while.

Great take on a Christmas aftermath. Contemplating about the holidays every year always makes me wish that it was Christmas every day. Do you? Not only that, you also rang in the New Year after the Holiday aftermath. Here's some Yuletide 5's to remember the holidays.

The needle and the brain damage done. Thank you all for sympathizing with my neuronic postholidaypartimosis. Andy, whose, er, heroine would you be speaking of?!!! BlackJack, how about mustarnaise? Red Ant, thanks a bunch. The middle chants are a bit of a challenge. And thanks Christie. I wasn't sure if I had gotten the feeling across or not.

Another great "Smells Like Teen Spirit Nirvana Parody" to kick off the New Year 2010 with. Happy New Year Warren, and I'll drop three 5's in the punch bowl for you! LOL! ;-D Great one!

Thanks WCJ, and backatcha on the New Year. And also hoping the stuff you dropped in the punch bowl is 555 proof...just don't light a match!
