Sons of Odin - Jingle Bojangles

about

Matt wrote the chorus of this song to spin Jingle Bells into a dumb song about our friends at and on our record label, Community Records. Well, we didn't end up recording it. So our buds Sons of Odin (Bryan Leavelle and Ryan Leavelle from A Billion Ernies, and Tim Harman from Informant, The Atom Age, and Detonate) recorded Matt's lyrics, and turned the rest of the track into a story about our Christmas EP. They recorded this the same week they heard our EP, so some of the references are a bit outdated.

We added this without permission, and we don't care who knows it.

lyrics

Jingle Bells, Jonzee smells
D-Ray laid a Greg
And TFT’s final LPs will never see the light of day, hey
Jingle Bells, five Leavelles
In our community
Flying Circus can't record a song
As fast as Ryan, Tim and me!

Matt's band wrote some songs to help spread some holiday cheer
But that lazy son of a gun couldn't finish this one here
So I took up the cause, poured myself some Christmas ale
Grabbed my guitar and completed the Community Records christmas tale!

Jingle Bells, Jonzee smells
D-Ray laid a Greg
And TFT’s final LPs will never see the light of day, hey
Jingle Bells, five Leavelles
In our community
Flying Circus can't record a song
As fast as Ryan, Tim and me!

A day or two ago, The Circus put an album on the web
Where some of their good ol songs were turned right on their head!
Songs about the government and beer turned into crushes on snowmen and Christmas cheer
Who'd thought a gay agnostic would drop the best christmas album of the year

Jingle Bells, Jonzee smells
D-Ray laid a Greg
And TFT’s final LPs will never see the light of day, hey
Jingle Bells, five Leavelles
In our community
Flying Circus can't record a song
As fast as Ryan, Tim and me!
