CQ Glee Club: Christmas Carol Countdown, Day 3

Christmas Tunes from the Curious Quilter Glee ClubI thought it might be fun to count down the days until Christmas comes (and passes) with some fun songs from The Curious Quilter Glee Club’s repertoire. Today, Day 3, brings a new offering (Deck the House) and an old favorite (The Twelve Gifts Not Finished!) Countdown Day 2 brought us parodies on We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Adeste Fideles. Countdown Day 1 brought us parodies on Jingle Bells and Rudolph.

If you want to share the tunes with other quilters, please feel free. I do ask that you acknowledge the source, however. Click here to find all the CQ Glee Club offerings (so far.) Sing loudly, please, on or off pitch, and in your language of choice,so I can hear you!

Deck the House
Sung to the tune of Deck the Halls.

Christmas Tree Clip art freeDeck the house from floor to gable,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Christmas runners on the table,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Quilts on all the chairs and couches,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Wrap the gifts in quilted pouches,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

For the girls sew holiday dresses,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Then make ribbons for their tresses,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Bibs for babies, shorts for boys,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Vests for guys, and then some pet toys,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Festive hangings for the walls,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Pretty garlands for the halls,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Every bed has pillowcases,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Quilters create smiling faces!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

The Twelve Gifts Not Finished
Sung to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas.
Note: I am only posting a few verses, but think you can wing it from there. This song is very repetitive!

Christmas Tunes from The Curious Quilter Glee Club - bellsThe first gift for Christmas
That I did not get done:
A king-sized quilt that wasn’t much fun.

The second thing for Christmas
That I did not get done:
Two tote bags,
And a king-sized quilt that wasn’t much fun.

The third thing for Christmas
That I did not get done:
Three mug rugs,
Two tote bags,
And a king-sized quilt that wasn’t much fun.

Keep singing ALL the other verses, ending with:

Christmas Tunes from The Curious Quilter Glee Club - carolersThe twelfth thing for Christmas
That I did not get done:
Twelve small wall hangings,
Eleven hearts for trimming,
Ten Christmas stockings,
Nine new potholders,
Eight fancy aprons,
Seven pillowcases,
Six placemat sets,
Five baby quilts!
Four table runners,
Three mug rugs,
Two tote bags,
And a king-sized quilt that wasn’t much fun.

I think you all sing very nicely! Come back tomorrow for more carols.
