Sorry, I'm gonna have to post the lyrics...

These songs comprise a completely thought out, logical story and, DAMNIT, I can't go two days during november and december without listening to them in this order. I have a cassette tape I made of them from WAY back in the early eighties.

SO, without any further ado, I give you...

The Royal Guardsmen, circa 1966, performing the Peanuts/Snoopy magnum opus... SNOOPY VERSUS THE RED BARON.

---

SNOOPY VERSUS THE RED BARON

After the turn of the century
In the clear blue skies over Germany
Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard
Like the scream and the sound of a big war bird
Up in the sky, a man in a plane
Baron von Richthofen was his name
Eighty men tried, and eighty men died
Now they're buried together on the countryside

Chorus: Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' out the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

In the nick of time, a hero arose
A funny-looking dog with a big black nose
He flew into the sky to seek revenge
But the Baron shot him down... "Curses, foiled again!"

Chorus: Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' out the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

Now, Snoopy had sworn that he'd get that man
So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan
He challenged the German to a real dogfight
While the Baron was laughing, he got him in his sight

That Bloody Red Baron was in a fix
He'd tried everything, but he'd run out of tricks
Snoopy fired once, and he fired twice
And that Bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight

Chorus: Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' out the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

Return Of The Red Baron

Royal Guardsmen

(...sound of a plane crash, then some evil german laughing and "Der curse little klinehund Snoopy")

You remember that baron flying high in the sky
When Snoopy shot him down with a gleam in his eye
But that baron had leaped from his blood-red plane
Just before it burst into a big ball of flame
Snoopy circled back to check his kill
Saw the bloody red baron standing high on a hill
Then he swooped down low
Shouted "Curse you red baron!"
The German shook his fist you could hear him swear "Ach der
lieber!"

Chorus: Hey watch out little Snoopy
You're really in a mess
You thought you were through with the bloody red baron
But it looks like he's not down yet

Then a cry went up all over the land
The bloody red baron would strike again
But brave little Snoopy said "Never fear"
As he headed for his plane all the people cheered "Yeeaaaahhhh!"

Chorus: Hey watch out little Snoopy
You're really in a mess
You thought you were through with the bloody red baron
But it looks like he's not down yet

Snoopy blazed a trail straight across the sea
Searching in vain for his enemy
Then he found that German trying to fix his plane
A-sweatin' and a-cussin' about to go insane
Take it!

Snoopy landed for a pistol duel
The baron was worried
Snoopy was cool
He fired a shot and missed
Started to run
Before Snoopy had a chance to raise his gun
Hey watch out red baron
Snoopy is on your trail
One of these days he's gonna make you pay
And you'll go straight to-
Well watch out red baron
Snoopy is on your trail
One of these days he's gonna make you pay
And you'll go straight to-
Well watch out red baron...

Snoopy's Christmas

O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, du kannst mir sehr gefallen!

The news had come out in the First World War
The bloody Red Baron was flying once more
The Allied command ignored all of its men
And called on Snoopy to do it again.

Was the night before Christmas, 40 below
When Snoopy went up in search of his foe
He spied the Red Baron, fiercely they fought
With ice on his wings Snoopy knew he was caught.

Chorus: Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ring out from the land
Asking peace of all the world
And good will to man

The Baron had Snoopy dead in his sights
He reached for the trigger to pull it up tight
Why he didn't shoot, well, we'll never know
Or was it the bells from the village below.

Chorsu: Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man

The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine
And forced him to land behind the enemy lines
Snoopy was certain that this was the end
Until the Baron cried out, "Merry Christmas, mine friend"

The Baron then offered a holiday toast
And Snoopy, our hero, saluted his host
And then with a roar they were both on their way
Each knowing they'd meet on some other day.

Chorus: Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man

And THAT is my absolute, all time favorite Christmas song.

Other then this, I do rather enjoy having The Nutcracker playing while I'm at home goofing off or what not.

Not entirely sure if this counts, but definitely "Mr. Heat Miser/Snow Miser". Especially a cover version I heard a few years back (I think done by The Badlees).

I was reviewing the additional posts when it hit me:

"Gabriel's Song" by Sting. What a beautiful, haunting Christmas song.

And for Kei - A cover version of a Christmas classic that I thoroughly enjoyed was "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" by the Whirling Dervishes.

Cerebus - thanks for the memories, I loved the Snoopy v. Red Baron songs!

I love the Heat Miser/Snow Miser

"They call me Heat Miser, whatever I touch, starts to melt in my clutch. I'm too much"

Man...it must suck to have to take a leak then.



Big Show: Why is he getting the Intercontinental Title shot and not me?
RVD: Ahhh...maybe 'cause you're a tool.
Big Show: Look. I am 7'2". I am 500 pounds. I'm a giant.
RVD: Oh ok. You're a giant tool.

Good times.

Wow, no love for the Lou Monte classic "Dominic the Donkey"? It's just not time for the Yule Log without hearing "hee-haw, hee-haw, hee-haw, hee-haw, it's Dominic the Donkey...."

...and I almost forgot to agree with pieman on the Brian Setzer Orchestra, definitely rockin Christmas stuff.

My grandmather lived in Ocala, and she lived right next door to the drummer from the group. She got the records for free from his mom.

I still have them somewhere.

And not to hijack the thread, I'll offer up U2's version of Christmas(Baby Please Come Home) even though I recently heard a different version of the same song that may or may not have been performed by the Ramones. I need to look that up, by the way...

I'm not even a big country music fan, but I really, REALLY dig this song.

Iron Mike Sharpe, obviously. Ohhhh, I thought you asked for "greatest Canadian athlete." For wrestler, I'd have to say Flair as well, for achieving his sustained greatness through no lack of hard work.
