I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
From the bottom of my heart

Wait, what?
Those aren’t the real lyrics?
I sang my heart out to that song when I was a kid with hardcore confidence. My mom had to gently tell me that my lyrics, which made absolutely no sense in the first place, weren’t what the artist was actually singing.


Apparently, my friends and I have been screwing up songs for years and we need you to help us figure out the real lyrics.

Be kind, because—bless our hearts—we’ve been jamming these songs this way for a while. Let us down gently.
So, tell us what we’re really trying to sing here…

1. Got a KitKat
Boom Boom Pow
Got a KitKat
Boom Boom Pow

2. Take me down to the Prairie Dog City,
Where the grass is green
and the girls are pretty

3. Every time you go away,
You take a piece of meat with you

4. She wore a red miracle rings,
The kind you find in a second-
hand store.

5. Menuette Colette
Baby, you’re much too fast
Menuette Colette
You need a love that’s gonna last

6. Stop! In the neighborhood
Before you break my heart

7. Like a cheese stick, like a cheese stick
Now now now now now now I’m feelin’ so fly like a cheese stick

8. Cubra Libras getting baptized
Mama’s hands raised up high

9. Two Pop Tarts
Two Pop Tarts that beat as one
Two Pop Tarts
I need you, I need you
Two Pop Tarts

10. Every girl’s crazy ’bout a shark in pants!

11. Won’t you paint me a burning ham
Make it look just the way I plan

12. I came in like a raisin ball!

13. If it hadn’t been for Hot Nacho
I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from, where did you go?
Where did you come from, Hot Nacho?

14. Don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bathroom on the right

15. It doesn’t matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Anna Si Si Oh
