I put together this “spoonerized” version of the Christmas classic back in fifth grade, after hearing something similar on an early morning kids’ show the previous year. (This was in the dark days before VCRs and YouTube, so I couldn’t transcribe it from the original.) I recited it in class several times over the next few years. Since then, I’ve dusted it off from time to time for Christmas parties and family gatherings. (In fact, I have trouble reading the original without slipping into my “twisted” version.)
I offer it to you now, with best wishes from my inner ten-year-old.
