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
How come I never saw that...and then there is the Britsh National anthem which we sing at our school...my son is half scottish and lines like:
Lord grant that Marshall Wade
May by thy mighty aid
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?
