Deck the halls with boughs of holly (the Mum edit)

https://www.motherhoodtherealdeal.com

I love a good carol, but singing them on repeat the last week to the toddler has clearly made me a bit deranged as lying in bed on a reverse lie-in one night I started thinking up an alternative version to Deck the halls with boughs of holly – otherwise known as the Mum edit. Hope you like it all and Merry Christmas!

Deck the halls with boughs of holly

Fa la la la la la la la la

Toddler’s screaming, oh by golly

Fa la la la la la la la la

Christmas tree is dead already

Fa la la la la la la la la

And I’ve bought her the wrong teddy

Fa la la la la la la la la

 

Don we now our gay apparel

Fa la la la la la la la la

I’m sick of singing stupid carols

Fa la la la la la la la la

Brussel sprouts are oh so yucky

Fa la la la la la la la la

No longer feeling oh so plucky

Fa la la la la la la la la

 

See the blazing Yule upon us

Fa la la la la la la la la

Wondering if it’s too late to hide in a forest?

Fa la la la la la la la la

Is it too early to hide in the cupboard?

Fa la la la la la la la la

Feeling less elfish, more like old Mother Hubbard

Fa la la la la la la la la

 

Follow me in such merry pleasure

Fa la la la la la la la la

The house is full of trash, not treasure

Fa la la la la la la la la

Is it time to turn the lights out?

Fa la la la la la la la la

Christmas has turned us all into right louts

Fa la la la la la la la la

 

Fast away the old year passes,

Fa la la la la la la la la

Another Christmas jumper ends up in the rubbish

Fa la la la la la la la la

Another year of carnage before us

Fa la la la la la la la la

Counting down the days to Easter and mass chocolate

Fa la la la la la la la la

Did this tickle you? Oh go on, spread a little festive humour and give it a little share!

  1. House is full of trash, tick. Wrong teddy tick. Fabulous Hun x great minds think alike! My carol on repeat was the 12 days of Christmas x

  2. Better than the original in my opinion! And yes, why did I not realise that January is not a time for diets and depression after all? It is just Easter eve eve eve eve…. etc.

    Thanks for hosting lovely! #Coolmumclub x

  3. Ha, I think you should record this! My Christmas tree is dying already and I have needles all over the floor which I can’t be bothered to hoover everyday (so baby keeps eating them!) But I never throw my christmas jumper away – think I’ve had the same one for the last three years now! #coolmumclub xx

  4. Hahahaha – this is BRILLIANT Tayla! Love it 🙂 Merry Christmas. Hope you and your family have a fantastic one and you don’t really feel like hiding in the forest. #coolmumclub

  5. Hehe! Love it!! Another year of carnage-most definitely (sigh…!) probably bought all the wrong toys too!! I can get on board with sprouts though!!!! Not that the children will…!

  6. Ok; so you had me right back at a ‘reverse lie in’??? What is this and how do I get me one of those?? Early to bed perhaps? Ridiculous the stuff that goes through ones head when it’s time to sleep. Great giggle! #coolmumclub

  7. Oh my word, I LOVED THIS! It is so hilarious but you know what, I was thinking as I was laughing, “I think she’s singing about my life!” And you’re right, we need the funnies to keep our sanity in check, yes, even when covered in vomit. Thanks for hosting #coolmumclub and a Merry Christmas to you and your family xx
