I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

December 5, 2006

I’ve heard this song about a thousand times and this last time, on XM 104, I finally *got* it. Paul Anka’s version is virtually unlistenable, but his awkward phrasing flipped a switch in my head. I always pictured “Daddy” fast asleep during this incident — and man, would he have been pissed.

Some other Christmas music musings:

  • Johnny Mathis can sing
  • Ditto for Nat King Cole
  • Karen Carpenter could sing the hell out of a Christmas song
  • Willie Nelson — two thumbs up

    I was searching for eyeglass deals in Bangkok as we are going there next year.
    Thanks for your excellent information on online eyeglass shopping!If I can convince my “hands-on shopper” spouse we will buy that wayas it is even cheaper than Thailand.
    Don’t feel bad about missing the humor/point of that song as your likely not the only one to miss with that song or many others.(What is that website where people admit what they thought the words were compared to the real words of popular songs?)
    Thanks again for the info.
