The Christmas Tick Song

Marg & Art Corey/BMI Copyright 2015 (c)

This is a News update.......
This year in the North Pacific
There's been an...... outbreak
Ticks......in Christmas trees
It's tragic, it's incomprehensible......

1st Verse
There's ticks on my body, ticks in my tree
Oh, my Lord what's Santa done to me
He left me an ointment, and a little short note
You should have been good, is all he wrote.......
Ticks in the tree.......
Oh, ticks in the tree........

2nd Verse
Oh, my gosh they're startin' itch
Let me tell you this Christmas is a Bitch
They're swingin' from the branches
Jumpin from the tree
I even think they're singin' Jingle Bells to me......

Chorus
Well, I'm buyin' a fake tree already lit
Yeah, I'm buyin' a tree without any ticks
Them bugs are on my dogs and on my cats
There even livin' in my Coon skin Cap....

3rd Verse
Now, Santa came down the chimney
And put those ticks in my Christmas tree
But, maybe next year I'll try to be better
And even wear Aunt Tilly's, crapy ol' sweater.....

Ending.........
Oh no.....I just found out.......
I can't burn this tree......
We're in a drought...........
I'm so screwed
Bulletin......they're recalling fake trees

I love comedy and I'm glad you're having a good time with it. It sounds like it anyway. The music and production are great!

A fun one Art!! That sounds like your usual sax player.....awesome!! Is the flute from loops? Sounds like an AC vocal!

A very original song with a bluesy feel about it, which i feel could work well in a tv situation comedy or possibly even in a festive light-hearted movie.The vocals blend very well with the music.I hope it does very well for you keep up the good work. Wishing you much success

Slightly off-center and just a little bit crazy...I mean who writes about ticks in a Christmas tree? A truly out-of-the-box creative writer. Love the sax and background music. The ending is kind of funny (the drought).

Interesting lyrics. Really cool spanish guitar break in the middle of the song. Flows nicely back to the blues riff.

Neat idea. It's a nice change from the same ole Christmas songs that get played to death every year. It really put a smile on my face. What's Christmas all about anyway.

Very interesting combination of styles, very Frank Zappa-esque.
