A Modern Version of the 12 Days of Christmas

Every year I write a silly Holiday song based upon, and sung to, a well-known recording. Here is this year’s contribution to the ridiculous, a modern take on the Twelve Days of Christmas. Think of it as a romance author’s view of what could happen:

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me: A shiny house key.

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Six frozen pizza, five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Seven sexy nighties, six frozen pizza, five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Eight new movies, seven sexy nighties, six frozen pizza, five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Nine premier wines, eight new movies, seven sexy nighties, six frozen pizza, five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Ten naked photos, nine premier wines, eight new movies, seven sexy nighties, six frozen pizza, five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Eleven foil packages, ten naked photos, nine premier wines, eight new movies, seven sexy nighties, six frozen pizza, five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three toasted bagels, two café mochas, and a shiny house key.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Twelve text messages, eleven foil packages, ten naked photos, nine premier wines, eight new movies, seven sexy nighties, six frozen pizza, five chocolate kisses, four ripe strawberries, three bagels toasted, two café mochas…and a shiny house key!

      Aww, thanks Julie. I’m one of those weird people who make up jingles, and little bits of poetry from ads and well known songs. But I never share, so I enjoy doing something like this once a year.

    I love it. Unfortunately on the top of my list would have to be “get true love”!!! lol. This was great though. Happy Holidays.
