Alternative Lyrics Covid Holiday Carols

If you subscribe to our weekly emails, you already know that I’m a big fan of puns and wordplay. In mid-December 2020, I suggested some alternative versions of well-known carols and Holiday songs. I also challenged our subscribers to come up with alternative lyrics to their favorites and added a small incentive in terms of a shopping credit.

Here were my suggestions:

“There’s no place BUT home for the holidays…”

“Silent Night, no one in sight…”

“I’ll be home for Christmas, where else would I go?”

“Jingle Bells, my mask smells, garlic rolls for lunch…”

“Joy to the world, the vaccine has come…”

Deck the halls with lots of Clorox, fa la la la la ...

Sleigh bells rigged are you listening...

Deb M.

And some of your rewrote entire songs!

You better watch out, there’s Covid in sight
Quarantine they shout
And I’m telling you why, Santa Claus ain’t coming to town
He's making a drone
He's packing it now
Lysol for all
And ICUs for the un-masked, Santa Claus ain’t coming to town

He sees you when your shopping
He knows when you've been bad
He knows if you’ve spread COVID round 
So wear a mask for goodness sake

Last Christmas , I gave you my vaccine
But the very next day you gave it away to the entire USA.
This year, to save me from tears,
You’re giving it to someone special.

Last Christmas, I gave you a new President
But the very next day people started to say who’ll get to play
This year, to save me from tears
We’ll give it to some one special - front line workers save the day! 

Denise S,

But the winner based on my very unscientific preference was:

May 2020 be forgot and never brought to mind…

Also by Deb M.Best wishes for a much improved 2021, everyone! Be safe, be well and care for others.

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
