Another batch of new lyrics, with my apologies.

The Twelve Days After Christmas
( If you don't wish to sing along, scroll down to the last paragraph to see all the verses at once. Two, three, four! )

On the first day after Christmas, my family gave to me:

A ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day two after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day three after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day four after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day five after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day six after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Six New Year party hats,
Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day seven after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Seven rock-hard fruitcakes,
Six New Year party hats,
Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day eight after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Eight fights over movies,
Seven rock-hard fruitcakes,
Six New Year party hats,
Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day nine after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Nine sheets of homework,
Eight fights over movies,
Seven rock-hard fruitcakes,
Six New Year party hats,
Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day ten after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Ten Christmas bills,
Nine sheets of homework,
Eight fights over movies,
Seven rock-hard fruitcakes,
Six New Year party hats,
Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day eleven after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Eleven broke resolutions,
Ten Christmas bills,
Nine sheets of homework,
Eight fights over movies,
Seven rock-hard fruitcakes,
Six New Year party hats,
Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,
and a ratty looking Christmas tree.

On day twelve after Christmas, my family gave to me:

Twelve pounds of flab,
Eleven broke resolutions,
Ten Christmas bills,
Nine sheets of homework,
Eight fights over movies,
Seven rock-hard fruitcakes,
Six New Year party hats,
Five late Christmas cards!
Four restless children,
Three broken toy parts,
Two untouched cheeseballs,

and a ratty looking Christmas tree!

Alright! I only got #12 - the flab. Other than that, Christmas, leading up to Christmas and after Christmas, it has been very quiet.

Thanks for the sing along though = )
