Story

“Mixed-up Holidays” is a song about a bad dream where Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays get mixed up. Santa Claus ate turkey legs, and for breakfast he ate scrambled eggs – and sweet potatoes, pumpkin pies and cranberries on the side. There were elves and monkeys … it was so weird that the person almost cried inside. Santa drank some turkey cider from a Christmas sock - he sneezed and blew the presents to a boating dock! Rudolph set off fireworks in his Christmas sleigh … and made a great big mess that wouldn’t go away. Ho Ho Ho, Gobble Gobble Gobble … mixed-up Holidays. How did it get this way?! … It was a bad dream - perhaps it must have been from having eaten that bowl of whipped cream!

Lyrics

(V1) Santa Claus ate turkey legs Late on Christmas Eve And for breakfast scrambled eggs ‘ Would you ever believe? Sweet potatoes, pumpkin pies ‘ Cranberries on the side Elves and monkeys It was weird I almost cried inside … (V2) Santa drank some turkey cider From a Christmas sock Sneezed and blew the presents ‘ to a boating dock! Rudolph set off fireworks in his Christmas sleigh Made a mess, a great big mess that wouldn’t go away … (B1) Ho Ho Ho … Gobble Gobble Gobble Mixed up Holidays Ho ho ho … Gobble Gobble Gobble How did it get this way? (B2) Ho ho ho … Gobble Gobble Gobble This is such a crazy dream Ho ho ho … Gobble Gobble Gobble It must have been the bowl of whipped cream!
