Holiday Treats: Twisted Chipmunks Song

Do you love "The Chipmunk's Christmas Song"? What's that? You would rather stick a power drill in your ear? Well, if you think it's insufferable listening to this grating song year after year, how do you think Dave and the Chipmunks feel singing it for that long?

Bob Rivers provides a humorous insight at what the squeaky-voiced boy band and their hot-headed manager have to put up with all these years:

Christmas chipmunks sing each year
Squeaky rodents hurt your ears
We’ll sing bad till Christmas past
Hurry Christmas pass real fast
We’re a pain to listen to
Been around since ‘62
You could hardly stand us then
Now here we come again
Ah boys excuse me
Hold it, look you guys
You can hardly stand to hear
Three weasels every year

And here's Dave enacting his revenge on those pesky rodents with that barbecue he promised them:

Chipmunks roasting on an open fire
Hot sauce dripping from their toes
Yuletide squirrels fresh filleted by the choir
They poked hot skewers through their nose
Everybody knows some pepper and a garlic clove
Help to make them seasoned right
Tiny rats with a crisp golden coat
Will really hit the spot tonight

And now when Santa sees his tray
There'll be some homemade chipmunk jerky for his sleigh
And every hungry child is gonna spy
To see if chipmunks really sing when they fry
And so I?m brushing on some honey glaze
To keep them crisp and juicy too
Let's hope they get served many times many ways
Tasty Chipmunks; good food

And so I'm offering some recipes
From chipmunk pie to chipmunk stew
I?m not really sad that it ended this way
Furry chipmunks screw you
