The 12 Days Of Christmas — The Joe Biden Version

Written by John DeGroff on December 9, 2022

I’ve done a “12 Days Of Christmas” parody before, back in December 2015 and again in November of 2016, during the Obama years. Obama provided so much that was applicable for the idea of the tune that it was worth repeating.

If you’re not familiar with the background of “12 Days Of Christmas”, it’s what’s known as a counting song. The original idea is thought to be French in origan and was originally published in 1780 in England. The popular tune associated with the lyrics is from 1909, credited to Frederick Austin and is derived from an old folk song melody.

The way things have been going, it just seemed appropriate to give the Joe Biden presidency it’s own version. So, for your dining and dancing holiday enjoyment, here is the “12 Days Of Christmas, The Joe Biden version. ”

On the first Day of Christmas, Joe Biden gave to me…
A laptop from the very depths of hell.

On the second day of Christmas, Joe Biden gave to me…
Two terrible press secretaries
And a laptop from the very depths of hell

To save money, time, and space…let’s just go with the rest of the list as is…

3 scoops of ice cream

4 vaccine boosters

5 bucks for gas (the rhyme scheme works so well here, you’ll be singing this for a time… you’re welcome)

6 feet of social distancing

7 shady business deals

8 gender-neutral pronouns

9 hair sniffing incidents

10 tales of Corn Pop

11 public gaffes

12 months of record illegals border crossings

In closing, thank you all for a great year and for your continued support of this platform. May God bless you and yours and always remember why and Who we are celebrating.
