Notes from the Birdhouse – O Christmas Tree

This is to be sung to the tune….O Christmas tree. For your convenience, I have included a YouTube instrumental of O Christmas Tree. As you will see, a couple of words must be said fast in order to fit the song.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
We started looking around noon.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
We started looking around noon.
We’ve walked 7 miles down three canyons.
My knees are weak and so is companion’s.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree;
We started looking, around noon.
*********************************************************************************************************************************

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
The sun is setting it’s dark soon.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
The sun is setting it’s dark soon.
I’m hearing wild coyo-otes.
He needs to pick one soon please!
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
The sun is setting it’s dark soon.
********************************************************************************************************************************

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
He is chopping you down now
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
He is chopping you down now.
He whacked and whacked, until you cracked
I saw you crying pine extract.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
He is chopping you down now.
*********************************************************************************************************************************

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Our Charlie Brown Tree you will be.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Our Charlie Brown Tree you will be.
Your skimpy branches and crooked trunk
Makes me wish that I was drunk.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Our Charlie Brown Tree you will be.


Meet the large Charlie Brown Tree. It looks somewhat better now that it is decorated. No, no, not really.

I am not crazy about the tree but I would not have traded my first experience of looking for a Christmas tree with the one I love.

Until next time,
Ruth
