Merry Christmas, Red Sox Nation!

Just for fun, here’s a little holiday song about an imaginary Red Sox game on Christmas day.  Sing along to the tune of “Sleigh Ride”:

Just hear those cleats a-jingling

Bats ring-tingling, too            

Come on, it’s lovely weather

For a ballgame together with you.

Outside the snow is falling

The fans are calling for “Yoooouk!”

Why wait for April weather?

It’s Christmas at Fenway with you.

Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap

Jacoby goes

He’ll put on a show

Stealing home in a Fenway full of snow.

Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap, grand slam

To the outfield stands            

Pedey’s gliding along to the song                              

of a Fenway Park Bullpen Band.                   

Our cheeks are nice and rosy

and comfy cozy are we.

We’re snuggled up together like Jerry and Don

and Wally.                                          

Let’s take the Sox before us

And sing them a chorus or two.

Come on, it’s lovely weather

For a ballgame together with you.

There’s a Christmas party upstairs in the broadcast booth

It’ll be the perfect ending to the Curse of Ruth

We’ll be singing the song “Sweet Caroline” without a single stop

From the bleachers while we watch Big Papi’s pop

Pop! Pop! Pop!

There’s a happy feeling even those ol’ Yanks can’t buy

When the first few chords of “Dirty Water” fill the sky

It’ll be just like a re-run of the ‘04 series high

These wonderful games are the games

We remember all through our life.

Repeat verse 1, 2, 5, 6.
