PARODY OF CHRISTMAS SONG

(SUNG TO THE TUNE OF "WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE")
WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE
SMOKING ON A RUBBER CIGAR
IT WAS LOADED AND EXPLODED
OVER OUR FRANKINCENSE
OH-OH-OH
STAR OF WONDER, STAR OF LIGHT
THIS ONE DIED ON FRIDAY NIGHT
THIS ONE DIED ON SATURDAY, AND
THIS ONE DIED ON SUNDAY NIGHT

Submitter comment: I FIRST HEARD THIS SONG AT MY GRADE SCHOOL; (ST. MARY IN
MASSILLON, OHIO) USUALLY ONLY AROUND THE CHRISTMAS SEASON. ADULTS
DIDN'T SEEM TO KNOW IT, AND WERE SOMETIMES SHOCKED UPON HEARING
IT-- NOTABLY THE SCHOOL NUNS. FOR A WHILE I FORGOT ABOUT IT, BUT THEN
I HEARD IT AGAIN IN MY HIGH SCHOOL (CENTRAL CATHOLIC IN CANTON,
OHIO,) FROM OTHERS.

Where learned: OHIO ; MASSILLON
