Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/24/17

I was rather surprised last week at how everyone embraced the prompt.  I thought it was way outside the “norm”, especially considering the time of year, but you all took it in stride and really made me feel like I sort of have a handle on this whole thing.  I’m just hoping you stick with me through this week too.

This prompt is also outside the “norm” of what you might think of for this holiday’s eve, but I will do my best to explain my logic.  This isn’t necessarily a safe time of year.  People go shopping and get angry and upset and they sometimes take it out on strangers.  It’s also not really safe for the old bank account.  Does anyone really save up for it?  If you do, I salute you, because I think that’s amazing.  For me, it was always a burden.  Trying to come up with an “extra” portion of money when there just isn’t any is truly scary and not fun at all.

So, without further preamble, I give you our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week: “danger”.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

I’m teaming up with Simply Marquessa  and this week’s SLS theme was inspired by her weekly LyricalFictionFriday theme: “I’m locked and loaded…completely focused…my mind is open…” from the song Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande.

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.

  1. You played right into my hands this week – I’ll kill two birds with one stone. Holidays and Danger!

    (Note I had already decided the song I was going to feature regardless of the theme, but the one I picked fits this theme.)

  10. So I decided to play my favorite Weird Al Christmas Song, “The Night Santa Went Crazy.” This is a parody of “Black Gold” by Soul Asylum, and it has musical references from “Mama I’m Coming Home” by Ozzy Osbourne, and “I Believe in Father Christmas” by Greg Lake.” It’s a bit dark because Santa gets fed up and has a breakdown, but I can imagine even Santa having a bad day and becoming “a bit” dangerous. I hope you enjoy my lighthearted attempt at the theme, and I hope your holidays are enjoyable.
    Written by Weird Al

    Down in the workshop all the elves were makin’ toys
    For the good Gentile girls and the good Gentile boys
    When the boss busted in, nearly scared ’em half to death
    Had a rifle in his hands and cheap whiskey on his breath
    From his beard to his boots he was covered with ammo
    Like a big fat drunk disgruntled Yuletide Rambo
    And he smiled as he said with a twinkle in his eye,
    “Merry Christmas to all – now you’re all gonna die!”

    The night Santa went crazy
    The night St. Nick went insane
    Realized he’d been gettin’ a raw deal
    Something finally must have snapped in his brain

    Well, the workshop is gone now, he decided to bomb it
    Everywhere you’ll find pieces of Cupid and Comet
    And he tied up his helpers and he held the elves hostage
    And he ground up poor Rudolph into reindeer sausage
    He got Dancer and Prancer with an old German Luger
    And he slashed up Dasher just like Freddy Krueger
    And he picked up a flamethrower and he barbequed Blitzen
    And he took a big bite and said, “It tastes just like chicken!”

    The night Santa went crazy
    The night Kris Kringle went nuts
    Now you can’t hardly walk around the North Pole
    Without steppin’ in reindeer guts

    There’s the National Guard and the F.B.I.
    There’s a van from the Eyewitness News
    And helicopters circlin’ ’round in the sky
    And the bullets are flyin’, the body count’s risin’
    And everyone’s dyin’ to know, oh Santa, why?
    My my my my my my
    You used to be such a jolly guy

    Yes, Virginia, now Santa’s doin’ time
    In a federal prison for his infamous crime
    Hey, little friend, now don’t you cry no more tears
    He’ll be out with good behavior in 700 more years
    But now Vixen’s in therapy and Donner’s still nervous
    And the elves all got jobs working for the postal service
    And they say Mrs. Clause, she’s on the phone every night
    With her lawyer negotiating the movie rights

    They’re talkin’ bout – the night Santa went crazy
    The night St. Nicholas flipped
    Broke his back for some milk and cookies
    Sounds to me like he was tired of gettin’ gypped

    Wo, the night Santa went crazy
    The night St. Nick went insane
    Realized he’s gettin’ a raw deal
    Something finally must have snapped in his brain
    Wo, something finally must have snapped in his brain
    Tell ya, something finally must have snapped… in his brain
