Running's Hell
by Joe Terranova
(Parody of "Jingle Bells" by James Pierpoint)

Running through the snow
In a one piece windbreaker
O'er puddles I go
Griping all the way
Sweat from Sue's tail flies
The snow it is so bright
What fun it is to laugh and cry
A running song tonight

Oh, running's hell, can't you tell?
From the plan you don't stray
Oh, what fun it is to run
'Round Stony just one way
Running's hell, almost fell
This may take all day
Oh what fun it is to run
For this my feet will pay

A month or two ago
I thought this was a breeze
But soon my fanny froze
And aching were my knees
My spirit it had sank
My pain was at its height
I fell into a drifted bank
And then I got frostbite

Oh, running's hell, just ask Mel
Again around this bay
Oh, what fun it is to run
'Round Stony just one way
Running's hell, this I yell
What else can I say?
Oh what fun it is to run
For this my feet will pay yeah

Running's hell, my shorts smell
Argenta ran away
Oh, what fun it is to run
'Round Stony thrice today
Running's hell, I'm not Sell
On the ground I lay
Oh what fun it is to run
For this my feet will pay

Original Version


Jingle Bells
by James Pierpoint

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh yeah

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
