O Baronet! (O Tannenbaum)

December 06, 2018 11:30AM
For this year's carol, I went with Persuasion. I suppose that means Emma must be next year? (I also have another carol that wrote itself this year that I'll post close to Xmas.)

O Baronet!



Blurb: A paean to Sir Walter Elliot, to the tune of the Christmas carol, O Tannenbaum.

I


O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
Your looks are so unchanging.
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
Your influence’s wide-ranging.
Your age remains a mystery.
Your face: an angel's gift to thee.
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
Your looks are so unchanging.

II


O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
How you protect your fam’ly -
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
Against their own mad folly.
No lowly sailor they shall wed,
Bringing shame upon their head.
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
How you protect your family.

III


O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
The first among your neighbors -
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
You guide them in their labors.
They look to you, their leading star,
To show them who and what they are.
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
The first among your neighbors

IV


O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
‘Thrift’ is a vulgar subject.
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
You must maintain self-respect!
A budget should not be your chore.
Leave deprivations to the poor.
O Baronet - (Sir Idiot - )
‘Thrift’ is a vulgar subject.

//THE END//
