Ugly Overload Holiday Song Fest

Sherry has recommended that I sponsor an Ugly Overload Holiday Song Fest, wherein you, the readers, send in your mock-ups of holiday song classics, with the lyrics modified to reflect the focus of this blog: ugly animals, creepy crawlies, heeby-jeebies, etc.

To get us started, Sherry offers us her own creation:

Silver Fish (to the tune of Silver Bells)

City cellars
Moldy cellars
We have just ventured down
To the basement to get things for Christmas
Lots of boxes, stacks of boxes
I think this one's the tree
As we move them we're likely to see...

Silver fish, Silver fish
Its Christmas time in the cellar
Centipedes, race with ease
Soon it will be Christmas Day

Strings of webbing
Spider webbing
We're disturbing their lairs
As we track down our holiday treasures
Its disgusting
These need dusting
'fore we take them upstairs
And along for the ride there will be

Silver fish, Silver fish
Its Christmas time in the cellar
Centipedes, race with ease
Soon it will be Christmas Day


I love the idea. Please feel free to offer your submissions.

This is great. It almost makes me love the holidays.

Love this song! It's so true of silver fish. Does anyone know if they're all over the US? I've always kinda wondered. We have them here in PA.

(to the tune of Home On The Range)

O give me a home
Where the cockroaches roam
And where all the rest of the pests stay
Where none ever heard
Of hygiene as a word
And the junk stays uncollected all year

Home, home in the dumps
Where the flies, rats and ickees all play
Where none ever heard
Of hygiene as a word
And the junk stays uncollected all year

I like it, Aronwy! Not a Christmas tune, but definitely a classic.

Haha, sorry it wasn't a holiday tune... the holiday tune ones didn't quite work out when I was wracking my brains but my family and friends have a weird habit of singing this one around Christmas. Strange people we are. Anyway... we don't have a Christmas one featuring icky critters, but it's pretty funny anyhow:-

Deck The Halls

Deck the halls with pricks and cacti
Falalalala lalalala
'Tis the season to be nasty
Falalalala lalalala
Kill the guppy, torture the puppy
Falalalalala lalala
'Tis the season to be freaky
Falalalala lalalala.

Oh well!
