Holiday Carols for Parents: ‘Tis the Season for Laughter


Are you sick of “Deck The Halls”? Can’t stand “The Twelve Days of Christmas” one day longer? Well, here are some holiday carols just for you, Mom and Dad. Hopefully, they resonate a little more than riding in one horse open sleighs. 

Holiday Carols for Parents!

Something Smells

(To the tune of “Jingle Bells”)


I just cleaned up the house.

Bleached everything in sight.

Then I came in this room,

And something don’t smell right.

There’s weird stuff on the floor.

I start to gag and cough.

You’re looking pretty guilty

And you took your diaper off.



Something smells,

Something smells,

Something smells in here.

That smell I fear,

Is from your rear,

‘Cause something smells in here.


Tommy, the Red-Nosed Toddler

(To the tune of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”)

Holiday carols for parents.

Tommy, the Red Nosed Toddler,

Had a very runny nose.

And if you ever saw it,

You would say it’s pretty gross.


All of the other parents,

Thought his folks were pretty lame.

‘Cause they still let poor Tommy,

Play in all the preschool games.


Then one night at half past two,

Tommy’s friends did cry.

All of them had caught his cold,

And some had caught pink eye


Then all of the other parents,

Started to curse and fight.

‘Cause Tommy the Red Nosed Toddler,

Had kept their kids up half the night.


Vacation Hell

(To the tune of “Silver Bells”)

holiday carols for parents.


Vacation hell

Vacation hell

It’s Christmas break at home.

Hear them scream.

Hear them scream.

Soon it will be school again.



It’s too cold to go outside,

So you’re going insane,

Making playdoh and cookies and artwork.


Hear the kids moan,

The TV drone.

This is really brutal.

And there’s still three more days left to go.


Oh Please Just Eat

(To the Tune of “O, Tannenbaum”)


Oh, please just eat,

Oh, please just eat.

You’re going to starve.

Oh, please just eat.


Oh, please just eat.

Oh, please just eat.

I don’t care what!

Just, please just eat!



I spent all day making something nice.

It’s hard making Elsa

Themed chicken and rice.



Oh please just eat!

Oh please just eat!

You’re going to starve!

Oh please just eat!
