The Twelve Days Of Christmas

In the style of

Allan Sherman

Lyrics

on the first day
of christmas
my true love
gave to me
a japanese
transistor radio

green polka-dot
pajamas
it's a nakashuma

a calendar book
with the name of
my insurance man
it's the mark iv model
that's the one
that's discontinued

a simulated
alligator wallet

and it comes
in a leatherette case
with holes in it
so you could listen
right through
the case

a statue of a lady
with a clock
where her stomach
ought to be

and it has a wire
with a thing
on one end
that you could
stick in your ear

and a thing on
the other end
that you can't
stick anywhere
because it's bent

a hammered
aluminum nutcracker
and all that
other stuff

a pink satin pillow
that says san diego
with fringe
all around it
and all that
other stuff

an indoor
plastic birdbath
and a japanese
transistor radio

a pair of teakwood
shower clocks

a chromium
combination
manicure scissors
and cigarette lighter

an automatic
vegetable slicer
that works
when you see it
on television
but not when
you get it home

on the twelfth day
of christmas
although it may
seem strange

on the twelfth day
of christmas
i'm going to
exchange

an automatic
vegetable slicer
that works
when you see it
on television
but not when
you get it home

pair of teakwood
shower clocks
a pink satin pillow
that says san diego
with fringe
all around it

statue of a lady
with a clock
where her stomach
ought to be

calendar book
with the name of
my insurance man
and a japanese
transistor radio

merry christmas
everybody
