Subject: RE: Lyr Req: We Three Kings of Orient Are
Thirteen years dead, but what the heck... The subject of the first carol you can remember cropped up in discussion with friends, and I had to confess that the first one I can recall was the "bibbin'" parody I gave at the top. However, that led to Rubber Cigars & about 20 seconds of (no doubt not entirely sane) thought, and answering my own long ago question, in keeping with the Official version, I offer you...

We Three Kings of Orient are,
Tried to smoke a rubber cigar
It was loaded
It exploded...

We Two Kings of Orient now,
Hid behind a nearby cow
It was loaded
It exploded...

We One King of Orient am,
Looked suspiciously at the lamb
It was loaded
It exploded...

God rest ye merry gentleman
Or
Silent night...

As you prefer! I'm sure others here can do better... ;-)
