4. Nuzgûl for Christmas

I forced a marriage on an Elf;
Somebody snitched on me.
Went with the Fellowship myself;
Somebody snitched on me.
I wrote farfetched A/L slash;
Took part in a Boromir bash;
Scorned the canon - worthless trash!
Somebody snitched on me.

(Refrain) Oh, I’m gettin’ Nuzgûl for Christmas—
My fellow authors are mad.
I’m gettin’ Nuzgûl for Christmas
‘Cause my work ain’t been nuttin’ but bad.

I fell in love with Legolas;
Somebody snitched on me.
I posted ill-spelled, hackneyed dross;
Somebody snitched on me.
Said an Elf fell from a tree;
Went with Frodo and skipped Bree;
Claimed there’s more than one Gofi;
Somebody snitched on me.

(Refrain) So I’m gettin’ Nuzgûl for Christmas—
My fellow authors are mad.
I’m gettin’ Nuzgûl for Christmas
‘Cause my work ain’t been nuttin’ but bad.

So you better write good, whatever you do,
‘Cause if you don't, I’m warning you,
You’ll get Nuzgûl for Christmas!

Original text:
I broke my bat on Johnny's head;
Somebody snitched on me.
I hid a frog in sister's bed;
Somebody snitched on me.
I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug,
I made Tommy eat a bug,
Bought some gum with a penny slug;
Somebody snitched on me.

(Refrain) Oh, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

I put a tack on teacher's chair;
Somebody snitched on me.
I tied a knot in Susie's hair;
Somebody snitched on me.
I did a dance on Mommy's plants,
Climbed a tree and tore my pants,
Filled the sugar bowl with ants;
Somebody snitched on me.

(Refrain) So I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

So you better be good, whatever you do,
'Cause if you're bad I'm warning you,
You'll get nuttin' for Christmas!
