In keeping with Holiday Cheer, I decided to post one amateur email I received recently below as a SMALL contribution to more slick, professional, Holiday parodies, those done about Greece-Germany, EURO Land.

A fellow, name at the end, rewrote lyrics to a very well known, popular, little Xmas tune, song, ditty, with which, HOPEFULLY, all familiar: "Silver Bells."

(See BOTTOM of post for a YOUTUBE link, "Silver Bells," just in case you do NOT know it.)

So, here is HIS rendition of this popular tune.
Sing HIS lyrics to accompaniment of  "Silver Bells":


City sidewalks 
Busy sidewalks
City sidewalks
Broken sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style 
Dressed in death's own special style

In the air                                                       
In the air
There's a feeling                                         
Bombs are flying
of Christmas in wartime
Children laughing                                        
Children crying
People passing                                            
People dying
Meeting smile after smile                            
Refugees fleeing
mile by mile
And on every street corner you'll hear        
And on every street corner you'll hear

Silver bells silver bells                                    
War is Hell! War is Hell!
It's Christmas time in the city                        
It's combat time in the city
Ring a ling hear them ring                            
Sirens sing, bullets zing
Soon it will be Christmas day                        
Soon it will be total silence

Strings of street lights                                    
Burned out buildings
Even stop lights                                            
At the stop points
Blink a bright red and green                        
Blood is bright red at the scene
As the shoppers rush                                    
As the people rush home with their treasures                            
Home to take measures

Hear the snow crunch                                    
Hear the boots  crunch
See the kids bunch 
See the kids hunch
This is Santa's big scene                              
This is America's big scene
And above all this bustle                                
And above all the tank noise
You'll hear 
You'll hear

Silver bells, silver bells                                    
War is Hell! War is Hell!
It's Christmas time in the city                            
We are invading the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring                                
See the rockets, hear them scream
Soon it will be Christmas day                            
Soon it will be Christmas day.
