The Aussie Christmas Song

Parody of ‘The Christmas Song’
Songwriters: Mel Torme / Robert Wells
Performer: Nat King Cole



Our barbecue is an open fire
The beer is served icy cold
Mosquitos circle higher and higher
Swimming pool is for young and old
After snags and chops and salad, there’s dessert to go
With the summer sun so bright
Sweaty kids, drunk grandpa, eyes a-glow
It won’t be hard to sleep tonight
That is our Aussie Christmas Day
With good families, food and drink all holding sway
It seems that the household has been all drunk dry
Before the rellies say they have got to fly
And so let me just say this simple phrase
As we snooze in the afternoon
You’ve heard it be said many times, now this way
Aussie Christmas to you
And so let me just say this simple phrase
As we snooze in the afternoon
You’ve heard it be said many times, now this way
Aussie Christmas to you
