Bubble Gum and Sugar Plums

I wrote this song last year when I went home to East Texas for Christmas.  My Mom lived in a little cabin just down the country road from my childhood neighborhood. That was the year I shot the Bleeding Tooth Fungus video! So now it's Christmas Day 2016 and I'm suddenly vlogging. Maybe I'll get to play this really well and whole band of exotic French guys will play it with me, Zydeco-style.

Verse 1
Good hot fire 'n chestnuts roastin'.
Turkey’s in da fryer cuz Memaws hostin’.
Pr'ty bright lights 'n da brown leaves fallin.
Lil' baby Jesus in a manger - cryin’ n callin’.

Verse 2
Gonna give away stuff, like the oriental kings.
Box it up with fluff n tie it with a string.
Tinsel 'n trim 'n a candy cane too.
Gourmet food like its made at Corden Bleu.

Chorus
We’re getting
Decadent as a testament to Christ light shinin' bright!
Bubble gum 'n a sugar plum, better bring that appetite,
Cuz its Christmas, its Christmas, its Christmas!!

Verse 3
Colored balls ‘n long socks hangin’.
We’ll recall lil drummer boy bangin’.
Mighty 'n high, like the baldin eagle.
Sittin’ our lil butts down at the good lord’s table.

Chorus
We’re getting
Decadent as a testament to Christ light shinin' bright!
Bubble gum 'n a sugar plum, better bring that appetite,
Cuz its Christmas, its Christmas, its Christmas!!
