So my son is singing Jolly Old St Nicholaus for his school Christmas Concert and I have to say I always thought it was a rather sweet song...and then I read the lyrics...


Jolly old Saint Nicholas lean your ear this way
Don't you tell a single soul what I'm going to say
Christmas Eve is coming soon now you dear old man
Whisper what you'll bring to me tell me if you can


Johnny wants a pair of skates Susie wants a dolly
Nelly wants a storybook she thinks dolls are folly
As for me my little brain isn't very bright
Choose for me old Santa Claus what you think is right

What the??? 


How come I never saw that...and then there is the Britsh National anthem which we sing at our son is half scottish and lines like:


Lord grant that Marshall Wade

May by thy mighty aid

Victory bring.

May he sedition hush,

And like a torrent rush,

Rebllious Scots to crush,

God save the queen!


What the heck is that?


I can't believe I never realized these offensive little nuggets before...


What else have I been missing?  I thought it might be fun to post all the lyrics we never really heard before and shock the heck out of us now.


What have you got?
