The Lyrics

Parody #4 of the 25 Parodies of Christmas Challenge. Based on this article concerning holiday scams: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/the-12-scams-of-christmas.html.
Oh, the first scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Was a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the second scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the third scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the fourth scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the fifth scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the sixth scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Bait-and-switch everything
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the seventh scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Limited quantities
Bait-and-switch everything
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the eighth scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Restocking layaway fee
Limited quantities
Bait-and-switch everything
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the ninth scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Nigerian Prince’s email
Restocking layaway fee
Limited quantities
Bait-and-switch everything
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the tenth scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Items off a truck
Nigerian Prince’s email
Restocking layaway fee
Limited quantities
Bait-and-switch everything
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the eleventh scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Fake charity donation
Items off a truck
Nigerian Prince’s email
Restocking layaway fee
Limited quantities
Bait-and-switch everything
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag

Oh, the twelfth scam of Christmas this conman gave to me
Online non-delivery
Fake charity donation
Items off a truck
Nigerian Prince’s email
Restocking layaway fee
Limited quantities
Bait-and-switch everything
A work-from-home stint
Four black-market coupons
Three fake island homes
Two fake money checks
And a counterfeit Chanel tote bag
Watch your back (and your wallet) this season... or you, too, may get scammed.

Thanks, guys. I have a video of myself singing this on my YouTube channel, the link to which can be accessed via my earlier parodies. I'll put in a link next time.

Tell me about it, but you left out NINETY NINE, NINETY NINE - one penny short of one hundred. And there's "Only one dollar a day!", well how many days are there in a month?
Rebekah Dub - December 07, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, 2Eagle. I don't think I've heard of that scam, though for the sake of the song I included the more common ones. But yes, it depends on the month.

I know all about these, and my e-mail address seems to be a favorite for spammers. Great work, and 5s.
Rebekah Dub - December 08, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, Andria. My email address(es) get pelted on with spammer action, too.
