Christmas, Christmas Time is Near
Posted December 07, 2005 at 09:49:30 AM by Bean in the Flashbacks category
Had a wicked flashback last night while listening to that Chipmunks Christmas song on a commercial on TV.

I don't have a whole lot of clear memories from my childhood, so it's a real treat to let myself fall into a memory like I did last night. I remember my parents old record player - it was one of those big table ones, and it's had a smoothe black top on it. I used to take the top off and prop it up on stuff so I could use it like a slide. I bet I was about 8. We had the record single (45?) of the Chipmunks and I remember when I'd bust it out. It was almost like hearing that song officially ushered in the holiday season for me. School letting out... tree's coming down and going up... the smells and tastes of mom baking chocolate chip cookies and other Christmas treats. As a kid, it was the greatest. Alvin, Simon, and Theodore kicked off a 3 week long Christmas-break celebration. Their high-pitched carolling even outweighed the glorious sound of the 3:15-school's-out bell.

Open this wav file, then sing along.
Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer
We've been good, but we can't last
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast
Want a plane that loops the loop
Me, I want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don't be late

Want a plane that loops the loop
I still want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don't be late
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don't be late
Happy Hollidays, everyone.

Nah... fuck that... Merry Christmas.

Remember when we used to play Queen's :Another one bites the dust" backwards and it would say, "start to smoke marijuana?"
