When Your Brain Goes on the Frits... Sing a Christmas Song!!!


Eldrei Word Count: (not at my home computer at the moment… somewhere roughly around 24,000)

When I write a blog post, I usually try to make it meaningful and have some useful piece of information attached to it somehow. But that is not today. Today, for some reason, my mind has decided to take a vacation and I just can't concentrate. So if this post starts to go off in some random direction, I apologize in advance.

A subject I have been meaning to approach for some time is that of random poetry or song writing/singing. Now, I am a novelist through and through, but every once in awhile (much like today) my brain decides to go bananas and starts spouting of random lines of rhyming poetry and adding music to them. What can you expect when your brain does this? Well, it's quite simple: the result is that you start singing a funny Christmas Song that you wrote a year ago in September!

Let me elaborate:


White Christmas [OR] Letter to Santa (the product of Nichole's brain on the frits)


Green Christmases are stupid,
They are not Right; they're wrong
And that is why I'm singing
This "no Green Christmas" song
I'm tired of green grasses
When Christmas time is near
'Cause all I've ever wanted
Is one White Christmas year


Please, Please, Please oh Santa
If there's one thing you could bring
Could it be a good White Christmas?
That is all I'm asking!
Take all the Green Christmases
Throw them all away
I'm sure no one would want them
As presents Christmas day!


Green Christmases are boring
They're never any fun
Instead of ice and snowmen
We only get more sun
I'd like to see ice crystals
Before they melt away
But most of all I'd like them
To play with Christmas day!


Please, please, please oh Santa
If there's one thing you could bring
Could it be a good White Christmas?
That is all I'm asking!
Take all the Green Christmases
Throw them in the trash
They're old and they are dirty
And not worth any cash!


Green Christmas is old fashioned;
It's very out-of-date
And Santa, if you're listening
I'd like some new ice skates
But this is more important
What winter's all about;
I'd like some ice to skate on
Before I throw them out!


Please, please, please oh Santa
If there's one thing you could bring
Could it be a good White Christmas?
That is all I'm asking!
Take all the Green Christmases
Grind them into dust
I promise I won't miss them;
I'd never make a fuss!

I know that Santa heard me
My letter it was read
And it was snowing Christmas Eve
The hour I went to bed
But when I woke next morning
What did my tired eyes see?
The ground was green outside
But it was white beneath our tree!!!


Please, please, please oh Santa
If there's one thing you could bring
Could it be a good White Christmas?
That is all I'm asking!
But next time when I write you
This secret I'll confide…
The present that I'm asking for
Is better left OUTSIDE!!!


And there you have it. I really did write this song a year ago while driving home from work. My brothers and sisters love it! I honestly don't know where it came from... however, I do remember that here in Illinois we've been having more and more Green Christmases and I really wanted a white one.  Funny, it started to snow afterward...  But then today, when checking for typos in SOTD, this song started to float through my head. Strange… it's not even close to Christmas Time yet…

Has this ever happened to you?

Oh well! :D

lol, nice! I write random poems all of the time, especially when my brain is refusing to do anything else. :D

Yeah, it really was the strangest thing... and now, a day later, the song is still stuck in my head. Ah!!!
