Holiday Greetings; Merry Christmas Posted By v2g – Sat Dec 22, 2012 12:38 pm |
When I think about this time of the year, I am reminded that Christmas time is here and what will I find under the Christmas tree? In the background I hear the televison station playing a repeat of a “Charlie Brown Christmas”. This is too dark and depressing for me with his Christmas Twig tree and melancholy song. Christmas is supposed to be gaiety and light!
Alluding to the reason for the season when I was growing up, were the tales of sacrifice and love. Songs of the Christ child and the blessing God had bestowedupon men. Somewhere in the past were sights and sounds of Christmas filled with animated stories of Santa Claus, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and Frosty the Snowman.
With the star of Season 3 of Homeland in mind, my thoughts intertwine with the caricature of the little white Snow Bunny trailing “Frosty The Snow Man” over the hills of snow. Humming as I prepared for the evening meal I found myself singing this theme song today thinking how Frosty would be portrayed by Damian Lewis .
(words sang to the tune of Frosty the Snowman)
1ST VERSE: Frosty the Snowman, was a jolly happy soul, with a corn cob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.
2ND VERSE: Frosty the Snowman, is a fairy-tale, they say. He was made of snow, but the BUNNIES know how he came to life one day.
BRIDGE: There must have been some magic in that old silk hat, Soames found, For when he placed it on his head He began to dance around!
3RD VERSE: Damian Lewis, was alive as he could be, Band of Brothers say, he could laugh and play, just the same as you and me.
BUNNY CHORUS: “Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, look at Damian go. Thumpety thump thump,Thumpety thump thump, over the hills of snow.”
4TH VERSE: Damian Lewis, knew how “hot” he was that day, so he said, “let’s run and we’ll have some fun now, before I fade away.”
5TH VERSE: From London to LA, with with a Emmy in his hand, Running here and there, all around the square, saying, “Catch me if you can.”
BRIDGE: Bunnies live in every town, in every flat or flop; and still be cheering Damian on, when producers holler “Stop!”
6TH VERSE: Damian Lewis, has to hurry on his way, But he waves goodbye, saying “Don’t you cry” I’ll be back again some day.”
BUNNY CHORUS: Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, “look at Damian go. Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, he’ll get on another show.
Merry Christmas to all you Damian Bunnies!
