Buttercream,Buttercream, bakers cat,
ate all the cream, and got way too fat,
he couldn't get up on Christmas day,
his carcass was found,  out in the hay.

Here I sit, alone and sixty,
Bald and fat and full of sin.
Cold the seat and loud the cistern
As I read the Harpic tin.

We three kings of Stevenson Square*
Selling knickers, tuppence a pair
Quite fantastic no elastic
Not very safe to wear

Trad: Arr anon

*Manchester for the uninitiated - Uncertain whether there ever was a market there

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Christmas is going
The geese are getting sparse
Please stick a pitchfork... etc.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

*Manchester for the uninitiated - Uncertain whether there ever was a market there

We three kings of Leicester Square
Selling ladies' underwear
So fantastic, no elastic
Only a penny a pair

Good King Wenceslas looked out
Of his bedroom window
Silly bugger he fell out
On a red hot cinder
Brightly shone his bum that night
Tho' the frost was croo-elll
When a poor man came in sight
Wenceslas you foo-ooo-elll

Someone on Farcebok noted that Sabbath's "War Pigs" can be sung to the tune of "Deck The Halls" and vice-versa.

Generals gathered in their masses
Fa la la la la la la la la1
Just like witches at black masses2
Etc

1: Number of "la"s not checked for accuracy

From Wikipedia/Saturday Night Live

"In the meadow we can build a snowman
One with Gary Gilmore packed inside
We'll ask him, 'Are you dead yet?' He'll say, 'No, man'
But we'll wait out the frostbite till he dies."
