Filk Advent Calendar, Day One

I went to Orycon for the 4th year this year, and I've realized that it's past time that I start actually writing filk songs rather than making vague mutterings about doing so someday. Thus, I have decided to do a Filk Advent Calendar. Every day from now until Christmas eve, I am going to write SOMETHING that could be at least part of a filk song, probably to the tune of a Christmas carol, and post it here. If I go out of town, I'll probably either post them before I leave or after I get back since I have a cell phone so old that it actually makes phone calls.

Most of these songs will not be of very high quality or at all likely to be performed. The main idea is to get me working on (a) scansion and (b) writing something the heck down.


Inspired by the Alexander James Adams concert at 10:30 in the morning on the Sunday of Orycon, which strikes me as almost as cruel as an 8:00 am college class.

TTTO "We Wish You A Merry Christmas"

I wish I had had some breakfast
I wish I had had some breakfast
I wish I had had some breakfast
Before I came here

Sad tidings I bring
To you and your kin
There's no time for breakfast before we get here

The filk sing went 'til 2:30
The filk sing went 'til 2:30
The filk sing went 'til 2:30
The night before here

Sad tidings I bring
To you and your kin
There's no time for breakfast before we get here

The alarm was far too early
The alarm was far too early
The alarm was far too early
I'm not quite in gear

Sad tidings I bring
To you and your kin
There's no time for breakfast before we get here

No time to boil the goddamn water
No time to boil the goddamn water
No time to boil the goddamn water
Or else have a beer

Sad tidings I bring
To you and your kin
There's no time for breakfast before we get here

I can't think without my coffee
I can't think without my coffee
I can't think without my coffee
Somehow I drove here

Sad tidings I bring
To you and your kin
There's no time for breakfast before we get here

I wish I had had some breakfast
I wish I had had some breakfast
I wish I had had some breakfast
Before I came here
