THE (LA) CHRISTMAS SONG

Hotdogs roasting on a BBQ
Sunblock covering your nose
Yuletide carols blasting from passing cars
And friendly folks in their Speedos
Everybody knows, dark glasses and a floppy hat
Help out if the glare's too bright
Sunburned tots with their skin all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight
They know that Santa Annas are on their way
Blowing mild Winter weather every day
But every mother's child is gonna cry
When the seagull droppings start to fly
And so I'm breathing in this smoggy haze
With folks from SPF 1 to 92
Although it's been said, many times, many ways
LA Christmas, LA Christmas,
laid back tutti-frutti Christmas to you.

Ah, my friend, but it's been freezing in San Diego lately! Hope it's warmer up in LA or we'll have to start singing the original version!

Actually, I live in the High Desert. We're expecting snow this week.

...but COLD in San Diego? Where's Algore when we need him?

I don't know, but I dare him to stand the rev watch with me in a few hours!

I'm dreaming of a warm Christmas, just like the ones I've always known ...
