The Lyrics

A night or two ago
I climbed up on the house,
I gasped at what I saw,
And hollered for my spouse...
The shingles were not tight,
I knew this was not good,
So, I commenced to hammering,
It woke the neighborhood...

Oh, Shingle Nails, Shingle Nails,
Shingle all the way
'Gotta' nail these shingles down,
For Santa and his sleigh...
Shingle Nails, Shingle Nails,
Christmas coming fast
'Can't have Santa falling down,
And wind up in a cast

I "tap tap" through the night,
It echo's like a drum
Sometimes there's an "Ouch"
That's when I hit my thumb...
At first, the neighbor's screamed,
"We can't sleep! Please come down!"
But then when I explained my plight,
They climbed their roofs to pound...

Oh, Shingle Nails, Shingle Nails,
Shingle all the way,
'Gotta nail these shingles down,
For Santa and his sleigh...
Shingle Nails, Shingle Nails,
Christmas coming fast
'Can't have Santa falling down
And wind up in a cast..

Tap!..Tap!..Tap!
Tap!...Tap!...Tap!
Tap!..Tap!..Tap!..Tap!..Tap!
The houses are all ready now,
For Santa on Christmas Eve...

funny image, the whole neighbourhood gradually finding their way to their rooves to hammer their shingle nails - bizarre idea, AFW - 555

And now they're all prepared for Santa! Ah, it warms the heart...

I nearly didn't look at this one - it didn't seem that inspiring a title - but this is extremely funny, and spot on the pacing.

Oh, Shingle Nails, Shingle Nails,
Shingle all the way
'Gotta' nail these shingles down,
For Santa and his sleigh...
Shingle Nails, Shingle Nails,
Otherwise, it's true
Santa falls down off the roof
You know he's gonna sue
;-)

Deperate Shinglers? The Stepford Shinglers? Loved it, AFW. Time for someone to do Shingles Hell, about the nasty virus.

Thanks Alvin and John...true, John...another form of shingles...terrible thing..never had it...but know those who have.. Not to make light of such a painful nasty condition, but the worst place to get shingles is on the roof of your mouth...
