Here are the lyrics of the opening.
I cut my sister's long blond hair (somebody snitched on me)
Mommy and Daddy are mad
I'm getting nothin' for Christmas
Cuz I ain't been nothin' but bad.
I bacon wrapped my teddy bear (somebody snitched on me)
I dared my friend to lick my shoeIt turns out that it's not an original song, I just hadn't heard it before. I did a little research and found a lot of other people had covered it, including Eartha Kitt, Spike Jones, Shirley Temple, Reliant K, Smash Mouth, and a lot more. According to Wikipedia, in 1955 it was a million seller and was on the Billboard charts by 6 different artists! I don't know how I missed this song, but somehow I did.
I tried to brush my teeth with glue
I died the family cat dark blue
Somebody snitched on me.
The song is off of a holiday album of the Jimmies called "Mama Said Nog You Out" which features lots of traditional and untraditional holiday tunes.
Enjoy it, and Happy Holidays everybody!)
