A note from Down Under...

...in my email box this morning offered up a new take on a familiar Christmas song. It is apparently from some local comedy show, though I'm not there and have no idea what it's all about.

I like the song, though...

A VERY SPECKY CHRISTMAS

Our special guests this week are boy wonder Hamish Blake, ARIA award winner Missy Higgins, interviewer extraordinaire Andrew Denton and razzle dazzle dancer Rhonda Burchmore.

This week’s show features a star studded choir bringing down the house with a Specky version of ‘Winter Wonderland’ and an appearance by none other than the man himself, Santa. Don’t miss A Very Specky Christmas Special this Sunday at 7:30pm…it’s time to find out who’s been naughty or nice.



A Very Specky Winter Wonderland

Cricket’s on, are you listening
On my brow, sweat is glistening
Crackin a beer, we’re glad to be here
Christmas in a summer wonderland

Come around, bring your cossies
And some spray for the mozzies
We’re havin a lark
in the caravan park
Living in a summer wonderland

In the afternoon we’ll have a barbie
Even in a total fire ban

Marinate the bangers with a stubbie
And give a glass of sherry to your nan

Later on, we'll perspire,
As the temperature gets higher
(Santa) looks out of sorts
He should be in shorts
Christmas in a summer wonderland.

Maybe I am too young but what is a "cossie" and "mozzie?"

Int -- "cossie" = costume. As in bathing costume. A "mozzie" is what all y'all call a skeeter!

Looks like something from Aussie TV show Spicks and Specks..! That's exactly how my Christmases go...cricket in the backyard and plenty of beer.
