I Got A Cold For Christmas has three versions and one rewrite by Discofurby.

The Three Stooges Version.

I was good as solid gold

and did the things that I was told

the days nobody had a stove,

but I got a cold for Christmas.

Johnny got a brand new sled

with shiny runners painted red.

He's outside but I'm in bed.

I got a cold for Christmas.

All the other girls and boys

ran downstairs to get their toys

but all I did was sneeze and sniff

and use my Christmas handkerchief.

It can't be right. It isn't fair

I brushed my teeth and combed my hair.

But did it get me anywhere?

I got a Cold For Christmas.

Waited by the windowsill.

Just for Santa, caught a chill.

Where's my penicillin pill?

I got a cold for Christmas.

Granny got a brand new gun.

and Jim got electric trains that run.

I got a fever of a hundred and one.

I got a Cold For Christmas.

The Ames Brothers Version

On Christmas Day, when all the kids were playing with their toys.

We noticed in the corner stood a sad and lonely boy.

When we went up to ask him why a tear was in his eye,

he looked at us and sniffled and this was his reply.

Boy: I was good as solid gold and did the things that I was told.

The days nobody had to scold, but I got a cold for Christmas.

Johnny got a brand new sled with shiny runners painted red.

He's outside but I'm in bed, I got a cold for Christmas.

Narrator: All the other girls and boys ran downstairs to get their toys

but all he did was sneeze and sniff.

Boy: And use my Christmas handkerchief.

It can't be right, it isn't fair. I brushed my teeth and combed my hair,

but did it get me anywhere? I got a cold for Christmas.

Narrator: He waited by the windowsill, just for Santa. Caught a chill.

Boy: Where's my penicillin pill? I got a cold for Christmas.

Narrator: Christmas Day he cried and cried, his inhaler by his side.

Played with last year's dominoes.

Boy: And blew and blew and blew my nose.

Narrator: He was so good for oh so long, but somewhere something sure went wrong.

Boy: I can hardly sing this song. I got a cold for Christmas. I got a cold for Christmas.

Billy got a frog named Flip and Dan's on a Hawaii trip but all my nose can do is drip.

I got a cold for Christmas.

Here I am stuck in my bed with itchy eyes and achy head.

Instead of fun I got instead, one tissue box, two cough drops, three aspirins, four paperclips, five Vapo Rubs, six toffee drops which were not on my holiday wish list, but I got a cold for Christmas.

Scared There Will Be No Christmas by Discofurby,

The week before Christmas everyone was full of hope and joy.

We noticed, in the corner, stood a shy and timid boy.

When we went up to ask him why fear was in his eye

he looked at us with caution and this was his reply

"Santa Claus, he might get sick. The reindeer might forget their trick, and as the clock goes tick tock tick, I'm scared there will be no Christmas.

I would like to have a sled. My daddy's dressed in green and red. But Santa Claus might be in bed. I'm scared there will be no Christmas.

All the other girls and boys are looking forward to treats and toys. I can't imagine what to say if there just is no Christmas Day.

I've heard so many stories where Christmas simply isn't there. If you had read them you would fear. I'm scared there will be no Christmas.

Santa's reindeer might get ill or Santa Claus might catch a chill. Will Christmas be around here still? I'm scared there will be no Christmas."

There he stood, his eyes were wide. He had some lollies by his side. Played with last year's dominoes and hoped there'll still be ho ho ho's.

"I've been so good for oh so long, but somewhere something might go wrong. I am here to sing this song, cause I'm scared there will be no Christmas. Scared there will be no Christmas."
