If you’re a battler or a conch with too much yakka, don’t be a drongo. Knock up your mates, grab a slab of coldies and chuck a sickie.

Saturday Matinee – Carol of the Bells, Little Drummer Boy & Sleigh Ride

Sunday, 21 December 2014

The music for “Carol of The Bells” predates the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, is based upon a Ukrainian traditional chant that predates Christianity, and celebrates the New Year… in April. The original lyrics for the song describe a swallow flying into a house and promising good fortune because lambs have been born, and compliments the master of the house for having a wife with dark eyebrows (at least according to Wiki).

There are exactly 15 Pas, 18 Rums and 63 Pums in the lyrics to “Little Drummer Boy.” If you delete the spaces between the pa-rum-pa-pum-pums, there are exactly 21 Rumps. I can’t stand that song because it doesn’t stop when it should (just as the “Twelve Days Of Christmas” made it’s point on Day One).

It just doesn’t seem like Christmas until I hear The Ronette’s version of Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride.”

Have a great Pre-Holiday Weekend, folks, and don’t fight over parking spaces. I was there first.
