Carousing being a Seasonal Imperative (SI) whereby we, one and all, stave off the Dark and Dreary Doldrums of the Year (DDDoY) and whereby we, in our several and varied ways, celebrate all that which must needs be celebrated -the Coming of The Light being foremost- it behooves me as erstwhile, erm, de facto, erm, that is to say default-since-I-started-it-at-wren's-behest, erm Leader to start the first WASSAIL!

SO!! Without further ado...since I have not spent years studying ado as has our Magnificent Dr A.Doolotz...Let the Wassail BEGIN!!!

Wassail Punches and Punchlines, all manner being acceptable, provided of course they be lovingly rendered.... I tip my hat to you.

From Billy... Whistling

Nanny got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from the barn Christmas Eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me an' Chief, we believe.

She'd been eating too much soused cake (Soused with Pendleton),
And we begged her not to go.
But she forgot she left the water on,
And she staggered out the door into the snow.

When we found her Christmas morning,
At the scene of the attack
She had hoof prints on her forehead,
And incriminating Claus marks on her back.

CHORUS

Now we're all so proud of Rosie,
She's been taking this so well.
See her in there bucking and romping,
Drinking beer and playing cards with chickens.

It's not Christmas without Nanny,
All the family's dressed in black.
And we just can't help but wonder
Should we open up her gifts or send them back?
(SEND THEM BACK!!! )

CHORUS

Now the goose is on the table
And the pudding made of fig (ahhhhh!)
And the blue and silver candles,
That would just have matched the hair in Nanny's wig.

I've warned all my friends and neighbors,
Better watch out for yourselves.
They should never give a license,
To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves.
(Sing it, Chief !)

Rolling on the floor laughing

From Dr Doo circa 2008

Dashing through the snow, to go collect some eggs
Through the yard I go, running to the coop,
As I hurry forward, my basket bumps my legs
I stumble then I hit the ground face down in chicken poop,

Ohhhh, jingle hens, jingle hens,
Jingle as you lay
Oh what fun, it is to watch
the chickens all at play.
****************************************************************************************************

Santa baby, slip a silkie under the tree, for me
I've been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, an old English game bird hen too, self blue
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the chickens that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you'd check off my Christmas list
Boo doo bee doo

Santa honey, I wanna Wyandotte and really that's
Not a lot
I've been an angel all year
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, there's one thing I really do need, the feed
To fill my barn to the brim
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, please fill my stocking with hatching eggs and
An incubator so fine
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Randall Burkey's
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me
Boo doo bee doo

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a coop
I don't mean a 2-door car,
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
************************************************************************************************************
My Personal Favorite from the Doc:
Rosie the half beaked chicken,
had a very funny face
and when the others saw her,
they said "go some other place"
All of the other chickens
used to laugh and call her names
They never let poor Rosie
join in any chicken games.

Then one snowy Christmas Eve
Claire came out to say
Rosie I have no eggs left,
No eggnog, I'm so bereft...
Then how the chickens loved her
as she pushed one out with glee
Rosie the half beaked chicken,
You'll go down in history!!!

The Carol of the Critters --

Bok-bok bok-bok, quack-quack quack-quack
Gobble gobble gobble, honk-honk honk-honk
Nyeah-nyeah nyeah-nyeah, maaa-maaa maaa-maaa
oink-oink oink-oink, hee-haw hee-haw
Cacaphony, all merrily
with joy they sing, while carolling
one seems to hear beasty good cheer
from everywhere filling the air.

Neigh-neigh neigh-neigh, moo-oo moo-oo
Chrik-chik, chik-chik, huru-lu hulu
Gaily they chime, nature sublime
Songs in the air from critters everywhere

Hairy, feath'ry, furry Good Wishes
For a hairy, feathery, furry Christmas

On, on they send, on without end
Their joyful tone to every home
(Cooo-oo, coo-ooo, turu-lululu)

Hijack from Dahlia and another mission:
Yes Cousin I think a Wassail is definitely in order. mi mi mi♪♪♪
Hark the herald three short peeps
Glory to the chimpmunk pipp
Peace on earth and merry mild
Roos and hens are reconcilled
Joyful all ye hatchlings rise
Join in peeping to the skies
With pipperifinous pecks aloud
Hatchlings are born in bators with crowds
Hark the herald troups do dance
Glory to the the newborn hatch

(to the tune of Jingle Bells)

Dashing thru the coop...
Wearing rubber pink flip flops...
Squishing thru the poop..
Laughing all the way...

Feathers on hens are ruffled
Roosters flap and crow
Oh what fun it is to gather
All those beautiful eggs.

OOOHHHHH

Gather eggs, gather eggs
Brown and blue and green
Oh what fun it is to find
Those beautiful round eggs

Gather eggs gather eggs
Brown and blue and green
Oh what fun to incubate
And hatch those tiny peeps.

Country Coops built, busy shoveling poop
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there's a feeling
Of Christmas
Chickens bauking, roosters squauking
Meeting feather after feather
And on every coop corner you'll hear

Silver chicks
Silver chicks
It's Christmas time in the country
peep-a-ling
Hear them ping
Soon it will be Christmas Day

My granny is tougher than your granny, sewincircle:

"Never hit your granny with a shovel.
You never know if she'll reply in kind.
Never hit your granny with a shovel.
Take better aim and use a rock next time."

There must be more verses. Does anyone know them?

And then there is the superlative (and more relevant) Tom Lehrer's "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" which I learned as a lisping 4 year old.

(It is a parody--so don't worry about how awful it is)

Spring is here, a-suh-puh-ring is here.
Life is skittles and life is beer.
I think the loveliest time of the year is the spring.
I do, don't you? 'Course you do.
But there's one thing that makes spring complete for me,
And makes ev'ry Sunday a treat for me.

All the world seems in tune
On a spring afternoon,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.
Ev'ry Sunday you'll see
My sweetheart and me,
As we poison the pigeons in the park.

When they see us coming, the birdies all try an' hide,
But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide.
The sun's shining bright,
Ev'rything seems all right,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

Lalaalaalalaladoodiedieedoodoodoo

We've gained notoriety,
And caused much anxiety
In the Audubon Society
With our games.
They call it impiety,
And lack of propriety,
And quite a variety
Of unpleasant names.
But it's not against any religion
To want to dispose of a pigeon.

So if Sunday you're free,
Why don't you come with me,
And we'll poison the pigeons in the park.
And maybe we'll do
In a squirrel or two,
While we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

We'll murder them{ all }amid laughter and merriment.
Except for the few we take home to experiment.
My pulse will be quickenin'
With each drop of strychnine
We feed to a pigeon.
It just takes a smidgen!
To poison a pigeon in the park.

Ok guys DB here from Germany (yup, the singer!) and he's wassailin' up a German chicken spoofer on our behalf...

Stille nacht, Hühner im Tracht'l
Sind so süß mit Apfelmuß
Schlaff'n gemütlich in braunersoß
Sitz'n im Heiligen Bauernschoß
Schlaff in himmlische Brühe
Schlaff in himmlische Brüh'

(Silent night, chickens in lederhosen
are so sweet with applesauce
sleeping comfortably in gravy
sitting in saintly farmer's lap
Sleep in heavenly stock
Sleep in heavenly stock)

(Forgive the grammatical mistakes...never studied the language, just kinda learned it.)
