Perhaps it is time for a restraining order

Mark Leslie's Silly Christmas Lyric meme


I've been tagged with this meme by the lovely Franny.

The Rules: Pick a Christmas lyric that you've always had a question about and discuss it. Then either tag one or more people or either tag nobody and invite your readers to tag themselves and enjoy discussing the subject on their own.

I've always worried about, and felt icky, whenever I heard "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"

The first couple of verses - no problem, I'm fine with them. Third verse though, I find out that this fat old man in a red suit is watching me sleep, and knows when I'm awake. I don't know about you, but I think that is pretty creepy. There are times that I want to be bad, and I neither need or want an audience for that. If I ever do, I'll put it on YouTube.

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!

The first line of the fourth and final verse is right - I had better watch out, and so had Santa - he will be slapped with a restraining order within the week.

Please share your questionable Christmas lyrics in the comments below.

Like seriously, I am SO glad that I am not the only one who is creeped out by that song! Also, when I was a kid I used to wonder if Santa knew when I was in the bathroom and if he was watching me! And now, my children ask me the same thing. Ah the circle of life!

Thanks for playing!

What is it with these creepy carols?! Santa ends up sounding like a stalker, Frosty the Snowman is truly frightening.... and we sing these to poor unsuspecting children!

Let's forget the whole holiday and go around muttering 'bah humbug'...

I still have horrible nightmares about hearing that song when I was a child.

Now, thanks to you bringing it back, I'm not going to be able to sleep at all tonight. How can I sleep knowing he'll be watching me all the time?

(Thanks for playing the silly lyric meme)

It's enough to land a kid in serious therapy, what with some creepy, five hundred year old elf all up in your business! It's a truly horrific scenerio.

Fun take on it. I'll second the restraining order. ;)
