That was certainly enlightening. Justice demands that in response I offer the complete lyrics to the song that is only partially rendered in the video I posted. It is of course the creation of the incomparable Walt Kelly, creator of Pogo Possum, Albert the Alligator and all the other swamp residents. Here are the complete lyrics, I recommend singing this at Christmas gatherings at the top of your voice at any time you want to be alone.

Deck Us All With Boston Charlie

Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla, Wash., an’ Kalamazoo!
Nora’s freezin’ on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

Don’t we know archaic barrel
Lullaby Lilla Boy, Louisville Lou?
Trolley Molly don’t love Harold,
Boola boola Pensacoola hullabaloo!

Bark us all bow-wows of folly,
Polly wolly cracker ‘n’ too-da-loo!
Donkey Bonny brays a carol,
Antelope Cantaloupe, ‘lope with you!

Hunky Dory’s pop is lolly,
Gaggin’ on the wagon, Willy, folly go through!
Chollie’s collie barks at Barrow,
Harum scarum five alarm bung-a-loo!

Dunk us all in bowls of barley,
Hinky dinky dink an’ polly voo!
Chilly Filly’s name is Chollie,
Chollie Filly’s jolly chilly view halloo!

Bark us all bow-wows of folly,
Double-bubble, toyland trouble! Woof, woof, woof!
Tizzy seas on melon collie!
Dibble-dabble, scribble-scrabble! Goof, goof, goof!

At any time the above lyrics seem in any way nonsensical and meaningless I advise spending several hours watching MSNBC and or videos of Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama etc. and I guarantee that when you revisit “Deck Us All” you will suddenly discover all kinds of meaning in it.

May the force be with you against the farce.

I remember that! I think I may have driven my parents close to the brink singing that. Later there would be Mad Magazine parody songs that pushed them past the brink. To this day my sister still remembers the words to Ground Round. Someone has thoughtfully posted them on the internets...

Ground Round (Sung to the tune of Petula Clark's Downtown)

When you eat meat
and hate the meat that you're eating
you have surely got...
Ground Round!

It's so unnerving
when they're constantly serving
in an eating spot...
Ground Round!

It may be called
a chopped steak, Salisbury,
or beef patty.
No matter what it's called
it's always overcooked and fatty.
What can you do?

Call out to your waiter there,
beat down on your table
stand up on your chair
and say

Ground Round!
piled on my plate I see
Ground Round!
you're always conning me!
Ground Round!
Why does it have to be
Ground Round...
Ground Round...
Ground Round...[fade out]
