Excerpt from the song "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year":
There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow.
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
Of Christmases long, long ago.
Who the freak is telling GHOST STORIES at Christmas?
And not just ghost stories, which could perhaps be explained away with the story of Scrooge and his Christmas ghosts - but SCARY ghost stories.
Seriously, scary ghost stories? Is that all we could think of to rhyme with "glories?" How about Laurie? There are Lauries at Christmas. Or Maury, as in Povitch? He has a Christmas special.
How about another kind of story? Like CHRISTMAS stories?
Dear writer of that song,
Consult me before you write your final draft of lyrics next time.
