Don't we know archaic barrel?

First, a little musical holiday gift from the fine lads of The Honored Guests.

MP3: "Winter Slide"
Just a sketch of a song, but it fits the season. It does have some of that gauzy walking-in-the-snow feel to it (which we're getting none of in NC this year), plus...glockenspiel! I'll say more about the Honored Guests later -- just came across them, but I like 'em.

And now we sing the traditional carol:
Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla, Wash., an' Kalamazoo!
Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

Don't we know archaic barrel,
Lullaby Lilla boy, Louisville Lou?
Trolley Molly don't love Harold,
Boola boola Pensacoola hullabaloo!

Bark us all bow-wows of folly,
Polly wolly cracker n' too-da-loo!
Hunky Dory's pop is lolly gaggin' on the wagon,
Willy, folly go through!

Donkey Bonny brays a carol,
Antelope Cantaloup, 'lope with you!
Chollie's collie barks at Barrow,
Harum scarum five alarum bung-a-loo!
That's all for now. See y'all in the new year. Happy holidays, whichever ones you're celebrating.

"Good King Sauerkraut, look out!
On yo' feets uneven..."

Following Howard's lead, here's a little bonus for the hardy souls who read comments. I couldn't find a recording of "Deck us all...", but go here to download Mr Kelly himself singing "Go-Go Pogo".
