That Perennial Favorite Holiday Song...

On the first day of Christmas 
My true love hauled from the attic for me
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree

On the second day of Christmas 
My true love climbed up for me
A big ladder out of love

and
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree

On the third day of Christmas
My true love said to me,
"Now I've bruised my shin"
A big ladder out of love
and 
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree

5tree


On the fourth day of Christmas
My true love entoned to me,
"A tree this big is absurd"
"Now I've bruised my shin"
A big ladder out of love
and 
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree

On the fifth day of Christmas 
My true love spoke to me,
"No more jewelry"
"A tree this big is absurd"
"Now I've bruised my shin"
A big ladder out of love
and
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree

On the sixth day of Christmas
My true love questioned me
"How much for this are we paying?"
"No more jewelry"
"A tree this big is absurd"
"Now I've bruised my shin"
A big ladder out of love
and 
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree

On the seventh day of Christmas
My true love saw for me
Seven ornaments crashing
"How much for this are we paying?"
"No more jewelry"
"A tree this big is absurd"
"Now I've bruised my shin"
A big ladder out of love
and 
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree

On the eighth day of Christmas
My true love left for me
Eight Rubbermaids a'waiting
Seven ornaments crashing
"How much for this are we paying?"
"No more jewelry"
"A tree this big is absurd"
"Now I've bruised my shin"
A big ladder out of love
and 
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree
 cast
On the ninth day of Christmas
The babies needed a bath
And I ran out of pictures
Of our decorating rigors
And the laundry was a pilin'
As I sat a bloggin'
And the tree is still undone
But we had a lot of fun
And now my song is done....

And 
The steroid-enhanced, ridiculously big, pre-lit Christmas tree!!!!
(please add imaginary 4-part harmony for full effect)
