A Christmas song for rockers, mockers and anyone who wants a new song for the Holidays!


A night or two ago I was taken by surprise
There was this big fat man sailing through the sky
He was driving a sleigh with his suit of red
There was a whole lot of reindeer and this is what he said..
he said a “Don’t mind me, I’m just jingling and jingling”

So I wake up my baby and I tell her what I seen... she eyed me up and down and she said
“I know where you’ve been... You’ve been out drinking eggnog with all your rowdy friends...
You’re a drunken fool and you’re seeing things again
it’s only your brain that’s jingling and jingling”

Christmas time is here... and I am insane
I’m a happy fool... I’m feeling no pain
Ho... Ho.... Laughing all the way

Well I went downstairs to pour a cup of cheer
That fat dude is there and he’s pilfering my beer
I ask him what he’s up to... his suit and face is red
But he answers in a wink and this is what he said... he said
“I’m doing my thing... I’m just jingling and jingling”

Who was I to argue as he twisted off the cap
He nodded and he smiled and then he knocked it back
I poured myself a shot and joined him in a toast...
One should not drink alone... and I’m a thoughtful host
We spent all night there jingling and jingling

Then he sobered with a start and grabbed up his sack – said
“the wife will start to wonder – I should be getting back”
But he grinned – shook my hand and handed me his hat
said, “This’ll fit you well...” , with a laugh that shook his fat...
And the bell on top will keep on jingling and jingling...
