Harry's Christmas Carols

I think Harry has a future as an editor. Below are his versions of some Christmas carols I attempted to use to get him to sleep.

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose.
It wasn't shiny. It was just fine.
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows.
It doesn't GLOW, Mommy.

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names.
They called him Rudolph!
They never let poor Rudolph
He played games! They were up in the attic! I can get them!

Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa had an emergency job and needed a jackhammer.
It went like this BRM-BRM-BRM-BRM!
What's a sleigh?

Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
Now another song, Mommy!

"Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire"
Marshmallows roasting on a nice closed fire.
Jack Frost keeping you nice and warm.
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
This one's too long, Mommy. Do another one.

"The Twelve Days of Christmas"

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree.
What's a pear tree? Is it in our yard? Can we grow one from a seed? Right away?
(By the fifth day of Christmas, he turns on the seahorse to drown me out.)
