Didn't know where else to post this.. welcome (belatedly) to Christmas day ala Oregon and parts of Washington!

No Jingle Bells!
Lyrics © 2020-2021 Joe Givens

{Intro:}

No jingle bells..
No jingle bells..
No jingle bells today..

The weather won't cooperate
on this sad Christmas day!

No jingle bells..
No jingle bells..
What else can I say?

If Santa Claus cant make his rounds
it'll ruin the holiday!

{V1}

Sloshing through the mud
Is a mess, you will agree.
Santa's sleigh got stuck
Hadta do somethin' you see.

The reindeer cried and cried..
The kids were whining too..
Poor ol' Santa stroked his beard and wondered what to do!

{Chorus}

No jingle bells..
No jingle bells..
Can't even ride the sleigh..
It was bad enough with covid..
There's Christmas rains today.. oh!

Time to think.. what can I do?
So gloomy and so gray..
Can't let down the children
Gotta find another way!

{V2}

So Santa had his elves
Load up his SUV
Got it really full..
Of presents doncha see?

The ol' jeep roared to life..
And flew right through the mud
The big ol' elf was de-ter-mined
The day would be no dud!

{Chorus 2}

Oh, beep beep beep
Here comes his jeep
Santa's on his way
With a Ho Ho Ho

He saved the show
And our holiday..
That's how it was this Christmas..
And most of it was true..

{Outro}

From the soggy ol' Northwest US..
We say Merry Christmas to all the rest of you!

:P:P:P:P:P

We had an especially rainy Christmas this year, so I decided to write this thing.. it took me about 50 minutes.. the rains were just torrential so.. basically.. when I finished this thing I went back to sleep. Lol. I made a m4a audio of it, but the quality was poor.

This is so funny - I love it. I can sing in my head perfectly.

I might not introduce the SUV right away.

Sloshing through the mud
Dear Santa's sleigh got stuck
To make it through this Christmas
He might need a truck

I kind of wondered about that line myself. Thanks for the advice!

Haha. Super Cute. I like this. I love what Derrick said. That would be hilarious. Is it supposed to be sung to the tune of jungle bells? Are there any cool instrumental or melodic twists on it?

Also, wow. That is one fast jeep.
